November 18, 2013

Drivers entering a roundabout tend to feel uncertain and drive cautiously. The same driver may speed up at a yellow light or even run a red light. This accounts for the reduction in bodily injury crashes at roundabouts.

Stated simply: Roundabouts encourage defensive driving, while stoplights encourage risky driving.
