Koot-Con: Carried Away w/Roundabouts

Kootenai Conservative: Roundabouts are practical in some cases - the one at Kathleen and 4th, for example - but it many cases they aren't necessary and seem to be installed only because they're the current traffic 'fad.' There's one on Poleline in Post Falls that should be a two-way stop. And now the brain trust that is the CDA City Council is planning to put one at the NW corner of City Park so the poor folks on Park Drive can't get out of their homes in the winter. I'm all for increasing safety, but don't get carried away.

Question: Are you a fan of traffic roundabouts?
