Save the Roundabout

Roundabouts save lives.  In countries that have more roundabouts, there are fewer deaths per 1000 intersections than in countries that don’t have this unique method of managing the flow of traffic. 

And in many countries that have roundabouts, there is usually a “sponsor” for that roundabout who makes it pretty to look at by the travelling public. 

Whether it is art, flowers or something that represents the local culture, the sponsors of the roundabout are very creative.  In a recent Economist Magazine article called French Revolution there were some superb examples of what the French do to make their roundabouts noteworthy.  So next time you go through a roundabout remember those that helped to make it beautiful.
