Roundabouts can improve traffic flow in many ways
By Victor Kazakevich
RE: Roundabout proposal in Del Mar.
After a number of trips driving in Europe I have come to appreciate the often encountered roundabout. It is a most efficient form of moving through an intersection.
The benefits begin with elimination or lessening of stop and go traffic flow. Fewer stops are required, resulting in lower emissions expelled and lower noise levels from vehicles accelerating from a stop. It can be a speed regulator too. From an esthetic point of view, I believe a roundabout can incorporate a handsome architectural element, as well. I believe the roundabout is a wonderful solution to improve traffic flow in a number of ways.
- Traffic concerns raised
- Roundabouts on El Camino Real will be studied as part of road widening project
- Del Mar City Council shows interest in roundabouts on Camino del Mar
- Comedy traffic school offered
- State gets funding to improve Amtrak’s Surfliner route
