Roundabouts have been a part of Canadian roadways for more than 25 years yet, there are still many who are not familiar with how to use them properly and safely. As roundabouts replace more and more intersections throughout Windsor-Essex and surrounding areas, it is imperative that, in order to prevent injury, drivers learn to enter and exit safely as well as how to correctly operate their vehicle while moving through a roundabout.
Our Free, No Obligation Consultation allows the legal team at Bezaire & Associates to review your case and determine the compensation to which you are entitled. We guarantee that you pay us nothing unless or until you get paid!
BENEFITS OF A TRAFFIC CIRCLE/ROUNDABOUT
The design of roundabouts and traffic circles foster safer driving conditions by eliminating the need for motorists to cross the path of traffic travelling in an opposing direction (which is a big source of serious injuries). The difference between a traffic circle and a roundabout is simple – traffic circles are generally comprised of two lanes leading in and two lanes leading out, providing the opportunity for lane changes within; a roundabout consists of a single lane in a much smaller circle. If motorists utilize the roundabouts and traffic circles as intended, traffic flows will see an increase in their efficiency and a decrease in accidents.
ROUNDABOUT ACCIDENTS CAN LEAD TO INJURY CLAIMS FOR THINGS LIKE:
- PERSONAL INJURIES
- VEHICLE DAMAGE
- LOSS OF EARNINGS
- MEDICAL COSTS
- TRAVEL COSTS
WHY ACCIDENTS HAPPEN IN TRAFFIC CIRCLES AND ROUNDABOUTS
- Incoming traffic does not yield to the motorists already in the circle
- Driver inexperience
- Drivers unexpectedly stop in a traffic circle
- Operating a motor vehicle too fast within the circle or entering too quickly
- Inclement weather
- Vehicle Failure
- Distracted drivers
