Ann Arbor might be getting a new roundabout. There is a proposal to replace the traditional intersection at State and Ellsworth with a newfangled roundabout. Some commentors on the Com are understandably upset:
Why wont they listen to the roundabout opponents? Not only are roundabouts more efficient than intersections, they greatly reduce both the severity and frequency of accidents and injury. As some of you may recall Damn Arbor's senior traffic correspondent, the esteemed G$, uncovered this disturbing truth about roundabouts a few months ago.
