Show me that roundabouts are actually safer?

Editor:

I must say that I do not believe most of the benefits of roundabouts as touted in your newspaper, especially the "calming effect."

But what is most unbelievable, if they are so wonderful, why is your paper not quoting statistics of lower accidents all over the country?

Why, when I go onto the ADOT Web site can I find nothing about roundabouts except a study they commissioned because "ADOT had no experience with or knowledge of, roundabouts"?

Why, if the traffic circles in the East only need a new divider to make them into the better, safer roundabouts, why are they still being torn up in the East?

Lastly, how many accidents have there been at the intersection of Montezuma Castle Highway where it goes off the Montezuma Castle Road (to Montezuma's Castle), and what percentage does ADOT think it will reduce?

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
