Have questions about roundabouts? You are in the right place!
Did you know roundabouts increase safety while keeping traffic flowing?
Roundabouts are great at moving traffic, while providing traffic calming. GDOT states that single-lane roundabouts can move 24,000 vehicles per day. In fact, GDOT requires an examination of the feasibility of roundabouts for all intersection improvements along state routes because they are one of the best and safest options for vehicles.
The Federal Highway Administration lists the following benefits of roundabouts:
More than 90% reduction in fatalities
76% reduction in injuries
35% reduction in all crashes
Slower speeds are generally safer for pedestrians
Efficient during both peak hours and other times
Typically less delay
Reduce pollution and fuel use
Fewer stops and hard accelerations, less time idling
