More thoughts on roundabouts

-A A +A

I  read tonight the letter from Peter C.  LeDelfe titled  “Roundabouts.” I don’t question his observations from Nairobi,  but do respectfully question his conclusions, at least broadly applied.
I have driven extensively throughout Europe and Japan where traffic circles are quite common. I’ve found them to be a safe and efficient way to route  traffic, certainly much more efficient than stoplights or four-way stops.
Our  own local traffic circle at Diamond and San Ildefonso moves traffic quite well, despite the occasional driver still flummoxed by the right-of-way  rules.
I’ve noticed as drivers became more acquainted with our lonely traffic  circle the traffic flow has improved. Perhaps it will improve in Nairobi as  well?
