Modern Roundabouts

Modern roundabouts are the safest form of intersection in the world - the intersection type with the lowest risk of fatal or serious injury crashes - (much more so than comparable signals). Visit the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for modern roundabout FAQs and safety facts. Modern roundabouts, and the pedestrian refuge islands approaching them, are two of nine proven safety measures identified by the FHWA.

Proposed Roundabouts

We have two of these monstrosities down here in Panama City, Florida. One does not ever get used to them and drivers either edge through very slowly, stot entirely, or as mos of them do, whiz through without slowing down. Instead of a much-needed traffic light at the entrance to our airport, the so-called "traffic engineers," are going to add a third roundabout. I can hardly wait for that nightmare to unfold. From my personal experience, I would strongly oppose these projects. As a native of Birmingham and 52-year-resident of the area, I can tell you it will turn traffic in the Village into a horror show.
