I can just see it now, Dunkin Donuts parking lot filled with tow truck drivers fighting over who got the next accident. They really should install a traffic cam over the circle that would be availible to watch online 24-7. I promise you it would be like watching the comedy channel, lol.

A rotary will not work because people don't know how to drive in one and they won't learn. Basically, they are afraid of them.

Many Rotarys in Massachuettes have been removed. Traffic flows much more smoothly, there are less accidents and the traffic is faster since they have been replaced.

Putting rotarys where there weren't any before is taking a step backwards in time. They have been proven to be a failure. But, hell, this is Utica, what did you expect? 30 years behind the time, and that's the way we like it. Hey, didn't Shultz say just that?

Too confusing! We could really use that money in many areas besides this.. Think about how many pot holes could be filled!

Roundabouts work where the traffic is light-to-moderate. They are more problematic where traffic is heavy.
A roundabout in Oneida Square won't be as bad as Carrier Circle. Utica doesn't have the traffic.
This is correct.
