No clear answers as Lawrence City Commission looks for cuts to the city's budget

Here are some fun roundabout facts:

• According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there is on average a 40% decrease in all accidents and a 90% drop in fatal ones when a traffic intersection is replaced by a roundabout.

• Washington leads the states in roundabouts, followed by Colorado, California, Florida and Kansas

• France has over 30,000 British-style roundabouts; the most in the world.

Roundabouts are awesome. Hands down superior to stop signs/traffic lights - which are nothing but pure time sucks.

Ugh, more hodge podge 'retail' that makes zoning and planning look like amatuer hour. Having lived there for 40+ years and then elsewhere, this once unique city has lost its way. Storage units on 23rd. Ghetto.

Mr. Holroyd. do you still live in Lawrence?
