Roundabouts can improve traffic flow in many ways

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.
