Roundabout Here http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/columns/on-the-beat/roundabout-here/ To me, it is the essence of simplicity. Unlike a line, it doesn’t point anywhere or lead anywhere or even point at anything; it simply “is”. It’s its own beginning and ending. It makes me happy… en-us <function copyright at 0x5743ed8> Fri, 16 May 2014 22:32:20 GMT Yield In, Yield Out http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/columns/on-the-beat/roundabout-here/ 788fdada-dd6b-11e3-92a1-22000a4f82a6 Fri, 16 May 2014 22:32:20 GMT Roundabouts Rule! http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/columns/on-the-beat/roundabout-here/ dfc01578-dd4b-11e3-8dcf-22000a4f82a6 Fri, 16 May 2014 18:46:09 GMT Better than a fake roundabout http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/columns/on-the-beat/roundabout-here/ cc4ef168-dd31-11e3-94d8-22000a4f82a6 Fri, 16 May 2014 15:39:30 GMT Not all vehicles are cars http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/columns/on-the-beat/roundabout-here/ 3f4ddab0-dd25-11e3-9837-22000a4f82a6 Fri, 16 May 2014 14:09:39 GMT Pure Blinding Hatred And yes, I do realize that you are smarter, more sophisticated, more European, and just all around better than me.]]> http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/columns/on-the-beat/roundabout-here/ 6cee7c16-dd18-11e3-906e-22000a4f82a6 Fri, 16 May 2014 12:37:52 GMT Hi from the northeast!
Now, nobody is trained to stop at a yield, but the problem is that some people just aren't capable of quickly viewing and assessing traffic flow while approaching a control device that's meant to slow, not stop the flow of traffic. I've been in the car with many people who stop at yields because they aren't able to see the traffic coming, and feel safer if they can "look before they leap" by taking a few seconds.

Rotaries work great when you have people that are fully capable of driving rotaries, but when you have people that aren't mixed into the equation, you end up with the type of traffic backups the rotaries were installed to avoid in the first place. The trouble here is that while you can create any new type of device you want to control traffic flow, you can't change people. ]]>
