Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Take turns at intersections

I just came across this video recently posted at TED. The speaker is of course right about roundabouts – and, I think, misleading about traffic circles. As long as drivers adhere to the wrong headed “priority on the right” principle, they do NOT work. But he has a neat idea for minor roads at T junctions with major roads where the “all way stop” is just daft.

Sadly WordPress does not allow me to embed this type of video.
