Roundabout our newest headache

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, July 13, 2005

I received my postcard from the city on the new improved roadway called a roundabout. Having a roundabout is a poor idea. I have been in roundabouts overseas and even for the local drivers who have driven in them (like 40 years ago), a roundabout is a headache for them.

This roundabout in Juneau is very tiny, and we will have road accidents just as these foreign country roads have had them. I just wish that the city would have listened to its commuters when they said they wanted a traffic light instead.

Thanks to the city and state planners, now we have a new headache that we need to face each morning.
