Title: Modern Roundabouts for Modern Times

Abstract: Suddenly, modern roundabouts are in vogue. The Federal Highway Administration says they reduce fatalities more than 90 percent. The United States already has a thousand roundabouts, and France has passed 30,000. The town of Carmel, Indiana, has 50 roundabouts, as does the entire state of Florida. Why is this happening? What good are they? Who is demanding roundabouts? Where can they be deployed? What about vulnerable users, such as pedestrians, older persons and children? Do roundabout life-cycle benefit/cost ratios measure up? What ways do they support the principles of New Urbanism, Smart Growth, Context Sensitive Design and Active Living? Is there an ethical component? How do they affect climate change? Find out how modern roundabouts can be many things to modern people, including you.
