If the city officials Lawrence is going to continue to install roundabouts, they need to keep the commercial vehicles off of the streets with the roundabouts. These large vehicles continue to destroy the curbs on these roundabouts, and they leave gravel and other items in these areas which makes it hazardous for other vehicles.
