I read about this the other day and it made sense. Get rid of traffic lights, stop signs, put in round-abouts and suddenly people drive more cautiously.Whaddya think?H/T Instapundit
Only thing I'm sure of is we like traffic lights and the Brits like traffic circles/roundabouts.And it's obvious why "suddenly people drive more cautiously". It's visibly easier to get rammed in a roundabout. A lot easier.
No traffic lights? That would certainly make the immigrants across our southern border feel more at home. ;)Seriously though... round-abouts are great and faster than traffic lights. .. and this is coming from a Texas native.
I personally like round-abouts. They're stylish and effective. Form and function.
They also tend to take up more space, which is why you don't see them in urban areas like mine.
I've seen this work. It's nice!
