Roundabouts Improve Safety and Solve Complex Traffic Issues

INDIANAPOLIS — In the first in a series of podcasts, American Structurepoint experts reveal key safety facts and statistics about roundabouts and how roundabouts designed by American Structurepoint help solve complex transportation issues across the nation.

American Structurepoint Vice President and Partner Mike McBride, a nationally recognized roundabout expert, shares these important roundabout statistics in the podcast:

  • Roundabouts, when compared to intersections with traffic signals, result in an 80% reduction in injury accidents
  • Roundabouts reduce the total number of accidents by 40% when compared to intersections with traffic signals
  • Roundabouts result in a 75% reduction in pedestrian crashes and a 90% reduction in incapacitating and fatal crashes
  • Roundabouts are environmentally friendly. When replacing an intersection with traffic signals, roundabouts result in a 28% reduction in carbon monoxide and up to a 40% reduction in hydrocarbon.

To learn more about how roundabouts improve safety and increase traffic capacity, listen to the American Structurepoint Making Our Point podcast.
