round-abouts cause accidents. Check out Hilliard's round-about. Failed.

The problem here in Central Ohio is going to remain until drivers over 30 die out or stop driving...they can't adapt. Those who started driving after they were installed won't have nearly the problems.
Massachusetts (where they're called "rotaries") has had then since the 1930s and nobody has a problem negotiating them.
That said, I agree about the Hilliard roundabouts and the cause is obvious...putting two of them so close together is the same as putting two lights not far enough apart...during busy times it backs traffic up and clogs the roundabouts.

What I have noticed is they are not of sufficient diameter and degree of separation of exit/ enterances.
take the two recently built on Obetz road on each side of Alum creek rd. With UPS, the car auction lots etc they are not large enough for even a foor.door pickup let alone a car hauler or a long tractor with a 53 foot container behind it.
