Roundabouts, Anyone?

Vehicles use the roundabout at Hamilton Mason, Liberty Fairfield, and Vinnedge Roads in Fairfield Twp., Butler County, Ohio. Federal transportation officials say roundabouts _ or traffic rotaries _ are catching on across the country as an accident-reducing and motorist-calming alternative to multiple stop signs.  (AP Photo/The Enquirer, Amie Dworecki)

Question: I was a vocal opponent when the city of Coeur d'Alene installed that roundabout @ 4th & Kathleen, north of the Nazarene Church. I thought the city'd made a bad intersection worse. I was wrong. Traffic moves smoothly and safely through the intersection. What do you think of roundabouts?
