7 Roundabouts that drive Tri-Cities drivers crazy
Despite all of the frustrations associated with them, roundabouts offer several benefits that make up for these occasional moments of challenge. The most notable benefit is safety – studies have shown that they reduce traffic fatalities by up to 90%.
This is due to their decreased speed limits and their ability to keep traffic flowing instead of stopping completely as intersections do.
Additionally, they are more energy efficient than traditional junctions as cars do not need to come to a complete stop and then accelerate again after passing through them.
Finally, they also create less noise pollution than traditional junctions since there are no revving engines waiting at stop lights and fewer instances of car horns honking from impatient drivers stuck in traffic jams.
Roundabouts do serve a purpose but it's still not going to change our grumpiness when we are stuck behind a driver that can't seem to navigate a roundabout here in the Tri-Cities.
