A vote for the roundabout

I'm getting a little tired of some people complaining about the roundabout.

I, for one, think the one at Glenwood Drive and Route 91 is great. All you have to do is go 15 mph and merge accordingly. Maybe the city should make a You Tube video for those who need more guidance.

I live in Ethans Green and was coming out of Ethans Drive the other day heading south on 91 at 7:15 a.m., during morning rush hour. Traffic was backed up northbound on 91 almost to Glenwood. Why? Because the light at Ethans Drive was red. There was no backup south of the roundabout going north. Why? Because traffic was flowing smoothly through the roundabout.

Roundabouts move traffic and have proven to be safer. I think we just need to educate the people who are complaining and maybe some day they'll see the light -- and I don't mean traffic light. I look forward to the roundabout that will be built at Ethans and Meadowood drives.
