Letter: Roundabouts ensure safe, smooth traffic flow
Letter writer Philip Hoad argues people are ignorant to the benefits of roundabouts. RICHARD HARLEY?MIDJOURNEY

Dear editor:

I have written on several occasions advocating for roundabouts, especially in small towns with traffic lights.

I find the lack of proper understanding as to their benefits and the ignorance as to the dangers of traffic lights to be unbelievable in today’s age, especially when their use is now so prevalent around the world.

Rather than spout the facts again, perhaps take note of what is happening in other similar communities around the world.

Kennebunkport, Maine, is one great example in North America where the roundabout is a community hit.

In Europe, we have been planning and constructing for safe vehicular traffic flow in combination with pedestrian access using roundabouts for more than 50 years.

Please wake up, residents of St. Davids.
