Roundabouts do work

-A A +A

As we evacuated, I thought about what evacuation traffic might be like if Trinity Drive had roundabouts instead of the traffic lights currently in place.
Guess what? Los Alamos  County police officers had to be stationed at each of these intersections to keep traffic moving in effect creating a roundabout.
This appeared to be necessary because traffic lights turning red would have stopped traffic flow and caused backups.
My thanks to the county police for helping us avoid the joys of sitting at a red light with no side traffic waiting to evacuate town.
