Roundabouts work only in low-traffic volumes

Where were these guys when town planners long ago threw these things (roundabouts) out with the dishwater as one of the most useless pieces of engineering to ever come down the tubes.

These things work only in low-traffic volumes. Anyone who ever drove through or lived in Edmonton at rush hour knows how useless these things are.

As for not eating hoods, not running lights and obeying speed limits will go so much farther to prevent this.

In the same area, if planners haven’t addressed the parking situation at the new hospital in their design, maybe the dishwater trick could work for them, too.

At least they may not have to have all the asthma concerns now that the “bloom is off.” Whether you think it’s pretty or not, what a great job.
