About Time

We've always known that roundabouts are safer than intersections but now here is the proof that they save gas too: "a 65% average drop in vehicular delays, according to a recent Kansas State University study." "Roundabouts cut hydrocarbon emissions at intersections by as much as 42%." Time magazine has the story.

Roundabouts equal: less deaths, less injuries, fewer wrecked vehicles, less insurance claims and costs, fewer delays, better mpg, less pollution and smog, no maintenance of traffic lights. A win-win-win! What is Canada waiting for?
Back story.
