DonS: Now, This Is A Roundabout

"In Long Beach, Calif., there is a very large round-bout that has been there since I was a kid, built in 1930, reconstructed in 1993," emails Don Sausser. "It had no 'merge' signs and speeds of 60 mph were common. It provided for a game of bluff during our youthful driving experiences." Don, of course, was discussing the early-morning post at Huckleberries re: the growing popularity of roundabouts. At least one, and mebbe 2, will be installed as part of the education corridor.
