- Mr. Cullen's experience underlines the need for modern roundabouts along US 41 ... and, say, on LBK at Longboat Key Club and Ken Thompson Parkway. To say "I have personally witnessed at least 10 accidents in the yield lane onto the U.S. 41 intersection with oncoming traffic" illustrates that the signalized intersection at Gulfstream/US41 is broken, dangerously backing up traffic stopped for the red light, wasting fuel and time, polluting the air. The one-lane mini roundabout on Hillview is not comparable to modern roundabouts that handle high volumes quicker and more safely than Gulfstream/US41 red lights. Link to www.SarasotaConnectivity.com and see how well modern roundabouts are working elsewhere in the USA from Oregon to Arizona to Wisconsin to New York to South Carolina, etc ... even New Jersey.
