How many roundabouts can you fit into this single “traffic circle”?
I am only asking because, apparently, there is some confusion here about the differences between a roundabout and a traffic circle. (You have to acknowledge: Alexandria’s South Traffic Circle is epic. The head of our local historic preservation non-profit recently suggested in The Town Talk that Alexandria apply to have its South Traffic Circle designated as historic; it’s the size of an entire neighborhood. That has to be rare, which is probably the main reason it’s so prone to accidents).
This is what a roundabout looks like:
Maybe it is just me, but there seems to be a huge difference between high-speed, massive traffic circles and low-speed, small-scale roundabouts.
It seems a little disingenuous and intellectually dishonest to conflate the two.
