We needs more roundabouts! Delaware Avenue for example would benefit from several roundabouts. One would look great in the Village of Kenmore at the intersection of Delaware Avenue and Delaware Road in the heart of the Village.
Not only are they aesthetically more pleasing, but studies have proven that not only do roundabouts “force traffic to slow, but they keep it moving at a pace that beats, on average, the time it takes to traverse a traditional, lighted intersect-ion where drivers have to stop half of the time.”
The roundabout concept is not unique to us, but common in other parts of the world. Let’s do this!
