Won't work, puts the street peddelers out of business.

The good news, it won't get done until is rises to the top of Mr. Roefaros to do pile, just after getting a Police Chief, but just before making the hotel pay taxes.

If it's designed right it will work. I hated the things when I first had to drive through them, and I spent a little time in Ireland (try driving through them backwards, in the wrong direction) where they have thousands of them. It's just a matter of getting used to them. Wasn't that intersection technically a round-a-bout way back in the 60's when Kewpies was there?

The most ridiculous idea so far . To move the Onieda Square Monument to the center of Genny would be disaster . If the Mayor wanted to extinguish any hope for relection he would create this stone in his shoe like the Onieda Square Round-About on Genny . This will haunt him to no end . I've traveled in Europe and found that even Europeans have trouble with them and we expect to absorb this radical change . Consider The ice and snow and all the accidents that will occur . This will be Roefero's Folley for sure .
