O.K. some don't want "stop lights" at PVB and 372 and at Blagg and 372. How about round-a-bouts. Well that's the plan. There will be a meeting Jan 22 2012. to see if DNOT and NYE/Pahrump will pay over 2 Million for them. How will 18 wheelers, out-of-towners, and seniors handle that? Are lights better?? I don't know why all the fuss about the Town Board spending thousands, when everyone else spends millions.

It will cause a slew of accidents. These are mostly found in Freakshow California cities (Which is why they are being pushed here now), and they almost always up the amount of accidents in an area.
Lights only and few of them at that. Imagine coming off the highway on 372 and blagg at 55 mph and hitting a roundabout.

It wont work. It will also get vandalized once its starts causing people problems. Leave it to the bratty kids to take care of that.

The fuss is about trying to make us more "urban" and hip, aka more like some crappy euro faggy town.

Oh but you will, and the more you get angry and loud, the more we the "dirt people" win.

I cant wait till the wreck from those roundabouts hurts one of yours. They are dangerous and select members of the community have already done research on it, they will be voted down.

Oh you think people were pushing you around before? You have not seen anything yet. Right up to the line, right up to the line, and there is nothing you can do about it. We will push and push hard. Expect it.

You ever find the person who pushed you at the town board meeting? Yeah.. didn't think so.

Actually after all the reading I have done, the biggest anti round-a-bout groups out there are bikers. They tend to get squished while trying to merge into the insanity. For the most part with American cars on American roads, they are very dangerous.

That and the cost of them (about 5 million in cost per), it will doom them to the dustbin in Pahrump

You are in for a rude awakening. Progressive groups are uniting. Outside money is flowing in. Developers interested in oil and mineral rights are talking. Dirty trailer dwellers like you are going to be a thing of the past. Start checking out a new place to park your motorhome in Beatty. The City of Spring Mountain doesn't need you around. Besides, your welfare dollars will go further up there.

Uhh no, and when you can post proof of anything you say, not only will I believe it, but we will then work against that as well.

We talk a big game dont we? But can you prove any of what you say? Progressive groups? LOL ask Margery about how they are "uniting" haha

"the cost of them (about 5 million in cost per)"

Actually it's about 2 million for both vs 3 million for the light (1) at Homestead.

These things are death traps. We had them put in my town a few years ago. The FIRST TEN nights we had fatals there.. that's right, ten nights in a row.

The accidents continued for months and after a bicyclist was killed, the city council took them out.

"Why consider a roundabout?

Compared to other types of intersections, roundabouts have demonstrated safety and other benefits.

Roundabouts:

Improve safety
More than 90% reduction in fatalities*
76% reduction in injuries**
35% reduction in all crashes**
Slower speeds are generally safer for pedestrians"

"General information about thirteen roundabouts located in Maryland, Florida, Nevada, and California was collected and is included for readers' use. In addition, six retrofitted roundabout sites with accident data ranging from 1 to 3 years before and after were analyzed. In all but one case, the reduction in accidents for roundabout sites was in the range of 60 to 70%.

"A look at modern roundabout use in the USA in the last ten years indicates motorists are initially hesitant about their advantages, safety and usefulness.

In many communities, the initial hesitation gives way to support when the advantages demonstrated by this new form of traffic control management become evident ...


90 percent reduction in fatal crashes

75 percent reduction in injury crashes

30-40 percent reduction in pedestrian crashes

10 percent reduction in bicycle crashes

30-50 percent increase in traffic capacity thereby enhancing traffic flow"

These roundabouts first off, would never pass muster with the price tag, and second, are deadly dangerous. Just imagine the first "child" (AKA Drunk slut chick with 8 kids at 24) ends up killing herself on one of these death traps. Problem is she will probably take another person with her the way these nuts drive in Nevada.

I can assure you we will be getting no round abouts in pahrump.

Anyone else catch the date of this so called "meeting" about them? Jan 22 2012. Morons.
