Letter: Traffic mistake
November 8, 2013
After reading the article on the proposed roundabout at Inverness and Wakarusa, I can only say I think this would be a tragic mistake.

Like Commissioner Farmer, I also go through the Harvard/Monterrey Way roundabout frequently, which can be a very difficult task when traffic is busy (why wasn’t there simply a stop sign placed on Harvard to allow the busy north-south traffic to flow unhampered?).
