Roundabouts provide a safer way to direct traffic by reducing vehicle speeds and eliminating the need for left hand turns.

Research has shown roundabouts reduce up to 72% of all collisions at an intersection. More importantly, roundabouts have been shown to reduce fatal and injury collisions by up to 87%. 

Roundabouts also help keep traffic moving more efficiently by not using stop signs or traffic lights, meaning fewer stops and delays for drivers.
