There’s been a lot of discussion lately about roundabouts, most of it lambasting the county council for galactic stupidity and financial irresponsibility.
But I’m here to fight for the other side. Yes, I’m going to argue for roundabouts!
I’ve decided that they are a very viable solution. We need to increase throughput and we need to calm people down.
Any sensible person would agree with the council that Trinity Drive is a death zone, more dangerous than the streets of Fallujah.
You take your life in your hands when you come within 20 miles of it. It’s only a matter of time before the government declares Trinity a disaster area and hires Arizonian lawmakers to build a wall around it.
Dave Collins, statistician extraordinaire and webmaster of LA Walks, would agree.
Perhaps you’ve seen the LA Walks funded pro-roundabout commercials aired at Reel Deal.
You know, the ones that show the 1,000 foot diameter roundabouts that enable Boy Scouts to help old ladies across the street?
Walking is a great idea, but in their arguments to convince us that roundabouts are the solution to all our problems, some people use statistics like a drunken man uses lampposts — for support, not for enlightenment.
