Use Roundabouts with Discretion

They are extremely safe; they’re just not all that urban

Abstract

THE CITY OF CARMEL, IN, HAS MORE than 100 roundabouts. These have reduced injury accidents in this upscale Indianapolis suburb by more than 80% and do a tremendous job of handling large amounts of traffic. In fact, by acquiring the four-lane Keystone Parkway from the State DOT where it passes through Carmel, and constructing special “peanut” roundabouts at each of its off-ramps, the City was able to stop that road from being widened into a six-lane highway.
