Let’s begin with a scenario that could occur in any city or town across the country. A traditional, four-way intersection on the main road into a municipality’s downtown district has a higher-than-average crash rate, and residents have complained about high traffic speeds. Town leaders hire an engineer to study the problem and recommend a solution. After a comprehensive study, the engineer proposes the intersection be converted into a roundabout. Unfazed by the uncertain looks he receives for his suggestion, the engineer attends a meeting of the Town Council a week later to make his case for the conversion.
