Reader has questions about roundabout

I went to the meeting about the roundabout on Feb. 7. I talked to four representatives. Three did not know it was a school crosswalk

Re: Roundabout

1) Is this really necessary?

2) Assess first.

3) Plan later.

4)Faults:

a) Crosswalk from Infocenter.

i) From Infocenter to where?

ii) No consideration of the number of people at one time. We are talking tourists who are sometimes in large groups. I have seen as many as eight buses at the Infocenter.

iii) far too close to highway.

b) vehicles not shown in scale to plan.

c) video did not show line-ups of traffic.

I went to the meeting about the roundabout on Feb. 7. I talked to four representatives. One was an engineer. Three out of the four did not know it was a school crosswalk.

Parents who are concerned should teach their children road safety and consideration.
