I live south of Lindsey and enter Lindsey on Berry Road or Pickard Avenue, and I can’t imagine ever having a space available to enter Lindsey without a signal light to stop the heavy Lindsey traffic.
I foresee accidents as people try to beat the oncoming traffic to enter roundabouts after waiting indeterminable amounts of time and never getting space sufficient enough to enter. The yield sign might as well be a stop sign that never changes. I’m told that there was once a roundabout in Oklahoma City at I-35 and Northeast 23rd and people were just thrilled when it was removed, as it was of no help at all.
There seems to be an interest in having lanes for bicycles. Why can’t they use parallel streets where traffic is not so heavy? I wish I had figures as to how many bicyclists there are in Norman compared with the number of automobile drivers. I believe that the cars would outnumber the bicycles by a considerable amount.
It is nice to do for minorities as much as we can afford, but I don’t think that we should let them rule. Our government was founded on doing the most good for the greatest number, and this idea of a median is not what the majority needs or wants.
