Roundabouts and children don't mix
from Waterloo Region Record
Roundabouts are designed for the smooth flow of vehicle traffic, not for the safety of people who walk. In crowded circles with many lanes, even experienced drivers are busy watching other motorists and checking that they are in the proper lane. The one thing most of them still aren't doing is watching out for pedestrians. Meanwhile, pedestrians are completely unprotected as they cross roundabout traffic.
