... 110 roundabout. This will aid in estimating speeds in the crosswalk area of a roundabout, for example.

... 111 design, changes in operations, and/or targeted enforcement and education. Design changes could include reduction in the exit radius, reduction in lane widths, and/or relocation of the crosswalk.

... 112 sight distance at conventional intersections, to address this fundamental parameter. Additional Topics A variety of additional topics that could not be covered within the scope and budget of this project are also worth exploring further: • Relationship between vehicle speeds and roundabout safety • Relationship between design details and safety at multilane roundabouts • Relationship between safety and illumination • The operational effects between nearby traffic control devices and roundabout operations
