River Heights-Active Transportation- The Crash Part 8

I just said on Tuesday that I don't believe the traffic circles on Grosvenor Avenue are safe and on Wednesday morning someone was hurt at one of them and had to go the hospital.

The driver of the other vehicle didn't blame the other driver. He had this to say:

A child could look at that and say there is something wrong. It’s probably one step away from criminal.

Sam Katz says people just have to learn how to use them.

Sam Katz, you are wrong. They are not safe. They are not proper roundabouts. Someone is going to end up badly hurt and could die as a result of these things.

It is not safe for drivers, not safe for cyclists, not safe for pedestrians and not safe for homeowners nearby these mini-traffic circles.

Winnippeggers want safe roads. A traffic circle ought to be wide, have no possibility of turning the wrong way on it and have clearly marked yield signs to traffic and people with the right of way.

Sam Katz, tear down these structures.
