Letter: Roundabouts not always safe for pedestrians



I am 16 years old, but I do not have my driver’s license yet. The best way for me to get around the city is either by biking or walking. I also like the exercise.

I have noticed that the roundabouts, while great for car traffic, are not safe for pedestrians and bikers. Unlike stoplights, where a person can press the button for the walkers’ signal, there is no such device to stop the flow of car traffic at a roundabout.

The most dangerous intersection is at Carmel Drive and Range Line Road. It is almost impossible, especially at rush hour, to walk across the street. I am concerned that a careless driver could run over somebody. A possible solution would be to install pedestrian lights.
