Experience shows roundabouts work

As an on and off resident of Rancho Santa Fe, my recent holiday visit alerted me to the discussions of “roundabouts” in Rancho Santa Fe.

My initial experience of their traffic control in England was dangerous, big time. Our only salvation, after an arrival flight from the U.S., was that drivers near the UK international airport were alert to first-time UK drivers! We managed, safely, with them!

Recently, I read Rancho Santa Fe was considering the same. But, wait, our farm property in Washington County, Wisc., now boasts roundabouts, several, on Highway 60 east — and they work! Enter, look to the left, if nothing approaching, circle, and exit. Forget former UK experiences. They work efficiently. Wish that had seemed easy years ago.
