The Canberra Times is weighing into the great roundabout stoush of 2005. It seems a very great number of accidents in the ACT are at our roundabouts.
Personally I think they’re great. They allow very smooth traffic flow at very low cost.
My problem is the sub-optimal drivers who, despite a requirement to be capable of managing it, are too stupid to think the two moves ahead which make the things work. I nearly got cleaned up by a moron on Parkes Way not 20 minutes ago myself.
I propose that rather than bugger up our roads at great expense in removing our roundabouts we instead take another route.

Police the traffic around the roundabouts and take people who can’t use them off the roads. I suspect they’re the same people who make crap TV commercially viable and would like to see them removed from the gene pool, but that’s too much to ask.
