I never quite understood the fascination with roundabouts. I guess they are a nice replacement for a four-way stop at a low-traffic intersection. And it's kinda fun to zip around without stopping.
So why in blazes do the unthinking beings called city planers and landscapers plant TALL GRASSES as landscaping on the approach to a roundabout?
Can someone please tell me why?
It turns a roundabout into a four-way stop. Isn't that what the roundabout was designed to avoid?
