Roundabout Open For Driving

"It is a way to eliminate signals, to slow traffic down, to lessen the severity of crashes. Because, there are no more t-bone crashes in a roundabout. So, the fatality rate and the critical injury rate are all down when you compare regular intersections to roundabouts."
 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- Use caution and slow down, two important tips to remember while driving through the brand new roundabout.
The anticipated roundabout is open for drivers, allowing access for University Boulevard, Loving way and Hwy 31-W.
The city, county and WKU officials hosted a grand opening this morning.
Officials believe this is a step forward for drivers, relieving traffic and opening up space.
