SF traffic circles

Traffic circle experiment draws mixed reviews / Some S.F. motorists confused by devices:

"Having something in the middle of the road makes people more cautious. They slow down instead of just flying through," Wingart said. "People roll through stop signs. It got to where it was so bad in this neighborhood that it was too dangerous to cross the street where there wasn't a traffic light."

Yep. Stop signs are counter-productive. Confused disoriented drivers is a good thing, because it makes them pay attention.
