Most Motorists Having No Problems Adjusting to Roundabouts

Local law enforcement says only three “fender-bender” accidents have been recorded at roundabouts in Sturgeon Bay since they opened at the beginning of July. All of the collisions have been attributed to “operator error.” Captain Dan Brinkman of the Sturgeon Bay Police Department says the accidents recorded by his officers included one driver who became confused and stopped and then was struck from behind, a vehicle entering the roundabout and failing to yield to vehicles on the left, and a car changing lanes that struck another vehicle. No injuries were involved. Captain Brinkman says his department is aware that some drivers traveling through the roundabouts are passing other vehicles which is a maneuver that is not allowed. The bottom line, the roundabouts have been functioning as expected and the vast majority of motorists have been navigating them without problems.
