Less Is More—and I’m Not Talking About Cars

Roads Gone Wild

The trouble with traffic engineers is that when there’s a problem with a road, they always try to add something…it’s much better to remove things.”

The area I live has been trying round-abouts lately. I’ve seen several severe accidents where someone entered the circle without yielding to cars already in the circle. Another not-so-bright idea was to make one of them two lanes around (for a fairly small circle). This causes untold number of bumps per day. I haven’t seen the numbers, but I’d be willing to bet things are worse than the traffic lights they used to have.
