Learn about the safety principles behind the roundabouts and the specific design practices employed to address both simple and complex issues.
Congestion and safety problems occur at intersections, with nearly 70% of all vehicular crashes and approximately 50% of pedestrian crashes in urban areas occurring at or near intersections or driveways. Our current paradigm of intersection and roadway improvements with signalization is often detrimental to businesses near the intersection and overall liveability objectives. This course will discuss how roundabouts can resolve these competing needs and the benefits of roundabouts in the overall roadway/traffic planning process. This course will also discuss the importance of roadway and roundabout design safety principles to ensure well-received and successful projects.
