    Since I moved to Cornwall, I have to admit that I love the new roundabouts via the North River Causeway. It takes me 7 minutes to get to the office.

    Brackley Point Rd at Oak. Absolutely useless.

    I have to agree and a roundabout with nothing in the middle is only asking for trouble.

    Why?

    The only thing I dislike about roundabouts is people that don't know how to use them. Way more efficient at moving vehicles through an intersection

    Oh, sorry. They are in low traffic areas up here. Now in the City, I get that. There is one near me that was a 4-way but one is a dirt road and used so little. They are well paved which is good, but here, the roads are all potholes everywhere else. The money could be used elsewhere.

    Roundabouts - more driving, less stopping. What's to hate?

    And they force you to slow down at intersections reducing accidents.

    I argue that they started slowing the moment the wheels left the ground..... :lol: That's AT - just not before....
