Problems noted with roundabout

It is our hope that the powers that be carefully review the pros and cons before authorizing the proposed roundabouts. We local drivers are told that we must be schooled to use the roundabouts, but what happens to the visitors, tourists, school children and pedestrians?

Entering the roundabout from Sierra College, the yield sign is obscured by a tree branch, and tire marks clearly reveal the difficult passage. We have also observed that some people do not know the meaning of the yield sign.

Please give careful thought to the city of Claremont, Calif., which built a roundabout in 1999. Less than eight months after it was built, the bewildering Claremont roundabout was ripped out.
