(City of Chubbuck Press Release, August 2, 2022)
With the new Philbin/Chubbuck Rd. Roundabout opening soon, we wanted to share some information on how to Properly Navigate Roundabouts.
Roundabouts have been proven to be much safer than traditional intersections because they give drivers more time to judge and react to other cars, reduce the severity of crashes and reduce fatalities by up to 90 percent. They also offer 75 percent fewer conflict points than traditional intersections and cost much less to operate.
