    Most collisions happen at intersections. We need more traffic circles to replace stop signs and traffic signals throughout Caledon. As we drive the country roads of Caledon we are in the hands of fate at every intersection. All it takes is one distracted driver missing a red light or stop sign, who happens to be going through the intersection at the exact moment that you are going through, and it is all over.
    It does not have to be this way. Traffic circles slow down all traffic coming from all directions with a physical obstruction. When collisions occur, they tend to be glancing blows as apposed to deadly broadsides. In busy intersections, you can control access to the traffic circle with a traffic light, this is the safest solution.

    • Hi Neil. Nice to hear from you again. Thank you for your comments, they make a lot of sense. I’m finding that most people, even those who had initial concerns, are very happy with traffic circles (roundabouts) once they become more familiar with them. As you are probably aware there are many places in the world that utilize them for improved traffic flow and safety. I suspect you’ll see more in future.
