Robert P. Bowen: Circular logic
Editor: What’s wrong with roundabouts? In a word, nothing.
Your recent editorial panning roundabouts as “universally despised by drivers” is unwarranted and not true. Anyone who has driven on roads with roundabouts, either here or in other parts of the world, realize the advantages: keeping the traffic moving without stop lights, keeping the speed limit in check (45 mph on State Route 95 but not obeyed by most drivers), and reducing accidents.
SR95 through Lake Havasu would be an ideal candidate for roundabouts, unlike your negative opinion, as there is room for them at most SR95 stoplight intersections. Also, the size of our city does not warrant “overpasses” and “underpasses”.
