Roundabout runaround

Photo by Barry Wallace
A protest sign has appeared already on the north-west corner of Keele Street and the Lloydtown-Aurora Road, south of Kettleby, regarding a proposed roundabout where the two roads intersect.  York Region has made its intentions known that a roundabout is an optimal solution to reducing accidents at the collision-prone crossroads.   Will slowing down at this intersection and driving in a circle (or partial circle) be safer than a full stop at traffic lights?   Only time will tell.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. I nearly got wiped out by a huge truck pulling a huge trailer and trying to turn from Keele onto Aurora road fortunately he stopped in time to the honking of my horn!
    I don't see how a roundabout would alleviate that problem.
