Modern Roundabouts: A Safer Choice
The U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released a video that explores the potential operational and safety benefits communities can achieve from installing modern roundabout intersections. The benefits of roundabouts include increased safety, improved traffic flow, reduced emissions, lower costs, and community livability. The keys to successful installation of roundabouts include proper design, public involvement, and stakeholder support. For more information about modern roundabouts, visit the FHWA Office of Safety.
