My husband and I recently had to go through one of the Moorland at I-43 roundabouts twice because we were in the wrong lane to exit where we needed to go. When I recounted the story to my co-workers, their response was "But wasn't it still faster than having to wait for a light?" I don't think a roundabout is going to change peoples' attitudes about speeding through as quickly as they can.

I remember the first roundabout I ever encountered - I think I cursed under my breath as I entered it. Yes, they cause us to slow down and think - but it turns out that that's GOOD. Trading a bit of irritation for safety is a decent deal.

Also, another "revolution" through the roundabout beats a U-turn on a busy road any day, right?
