ROUNDABOUTS RILING RESIDENTS

 

Florida Transportation Department Gurus appear to have fallen in love with roundabouts, the traffic circles in intersections widely used in other states which are claimed to enhance safety.

The romance seems not to have spread to many motorists who question the notion of ease of access and ability to swiftly and safely make it out of the circle at the right time and place. A lively controversy has been attracting attention in West Volusia where, in the wake of deadly accident on State Road 44, a temporary stop light is slated to be replaced with a roundabout.

The debate is turning to Daytona Beach, where Florida Department of Transportation plans call for roundabouts as an integral part enhancing the roads leading from mainland to the beach. And here, City Manager Jim Chisholm is a lightning rod for those concerned not only with safety, but what happens to properties affected by necessary widening at key intersections.

Gerry Nolan, who has been part of the real estate and political scene for years, on June 17 sent an email to Chisholm, summarizing why the roundabouts may be runarounds. Read the E_mail here and read the Cityscape report.
