Brochure helps drivers navigate roundabouts
BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) — Roundabouts are being built in communities across South Carolina but they can be confusing to some drivers.
A study by the state Department of Transportation last spring found that in roundabouts there were 71 percent fewer accidents and 71 percent fewer fatalities.
Part of what makes roundabouts safer is that there are fewer opportunities for vehicles to collide and that motorists tend to drive more slowly through roundabouts than through traditional intersections.
