    Modern roundabouts are the safest form of intersection in the world. Visit http://tinyurl.com/iihsRAB 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, http://tinyurl.com/7qvsaem
    The FHWA has a video about modern roundabouts that is mostly accurate (http://tinyurl.com/6v44a3x).


    Thanks for the additional info. Johns Creek will be getting more roundabouts in the future.

    A whole 2.5 acres for a park? WOW! We need more concrete and less trees and green space. (sarcasm)
    Scott, roundabouts might be safer, which of course they would because one must slow to 5mph to get through them safely. However, they snarl up traffic flow, which in our small city is a huge problem. Roundabouts are not going to improve traffic flow.


    It seems as if someone needs to instruct drivers how to even use a roundabout. Most of the drivers I have seen just sit there like they have no idea what to do. Just wonderful!
