Roundabouts, still stupid...

...And expensive.
IB city PO #140734
$3478.17
"Roundabout demonstration"
Final cost for an unneeded/unwanted roundabout at 9th and Donax? Over 50K? We dont need a roundabout demonstration. Just go to TJ an experience them.

a week. It is the most dangerous part of my commute. There is a lack of understanding of vehicle right of way, use of signals pedestrians rights. Children trying to bicycle through it are in extreme danger.

And the most important fact of all. It is a waste of $50K+ by the current city council, that claimed not to have enough money to take care of our kids parks and playgrounds. They care more about their own vanity projects than basic city services. I believe parks are a basic city service. Which rates much higher than an unneeded roundabout on a fully functioning and safe intersection. They are completely out of touch with the residents. They chose the roundabout over the children of IB. They chose more redundant lights on Seacoast over sidewalks for residents on Citrus street. It is a mind set and a voting pattern that i do not agree with. Elections are coming.

'...Modern roundabouts are the safest form of intersection in the world....' ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- there's no safely issue involved - the roundabouts aren't being put in because there's a problem in the intersection ... it's a scam to pillage taxpayer money and any city manager that brings this crap before council should be fired immediately ...

Can't think of a dumber intersection for a roundabout. The one in Coronado is also dumb, as is the one down by the Palomar Trolley station.
