A Roundabout is a type of circular intersection (see images), coming soon to the intersection of Mill Rd. and Waikiki Rd. in which traffic flows counterclockwise (see illustration) around a central island.
What makes our roundabouts different from circles, junctions, New York?s and interchanges is that in a roundabout entering traffic must always yield to all traffic already in the circle regardless of lane position. Roundabouts have 40% fewer vehicle collisions and 80% fewer injuries; they also reduce conflict between pedestrians and vehicles, offering the center 'safety' island mid crossing. Bicycles do fare as well when challenged by entering vehicles.
