Better Traffic With Roundabouts

Roundabouts can calm down traffic.

"Deep anxiety: You're five minutes late for a meeting and rushing to make the yellow light. It turns red, but you're going too fast to stop, so you buzz through. Crash! You've plowed through the back seat of your child's carpool."Amy Sheridan, Exec. Director of the Concord 20/20 Vision writes an interesting op-ed on the plausibility of roundabouts in Concord, NH.
