Turn signal ordinance not about safety

    Our roundabouts are not big enough to make the turn signal a benefit. I think they will cause more confusion, especially in the two lane to one lane roundabouts, when you are clicking right, then left in a fast fashion. I’ve been using mine just to get a feel for it and I just don’t see people catching on. They are still trying to figure out the roundabout itself. If the signal tickets are adopted, I would like to see TREMENDOUS MARKETING and EDUCATION to the public on how to maneuver the roundabout and also how to use the signals before it is put into place.

      Wrong. Example.

      You are going west on 96th St and you use your right turn signal to turn north on Westfield Blvd. I’m going south on Westfield and I see your signal. I DO NOT HAVE TO STOP because you were courteous enough to let me know your intentions.

        I agree. The one lane roundabouts are much easier to use. I was mainly speaking of the two lane roundabouts. Still trying to practice!

    You are correct, it is not about safety. It is about efficiency. It is also about courtesy, which nobody seems to care about anymore.

    If you use your turn signals I can be more efficient while driving thru these RAB’s. I do not have to come to a complete stop but can flow thru the RAB. The way the were intended to be used.
