Letter: Roundabout is like game of ‘chicken’

Dear Editor,

I have been a resident here in Carson City for over 30 years. I am not one to complain; however, since reading an article in the Nevada Appeal this week, I would like to add to the remarks about the “Edmonds roundabout.”

I visit Lakeview Park at the end of Fifth Street many times a week, and going east on Fifth Street as I approach the roundabout, it reminds me of a game of “chicken.” In other words, I dare you to “chicken out.” Sometimes you win and get through safely. Oftentimes, it’s a very close call.

To eliminate the problem, a stoplight should be installed. These roundabouts may work if wide enough. This one is dangerous!
