Not one person I've talked to disagreed with me that the size of the roundabout is far too smaill in fiameter for the type of vehicles that go through there; very large RVs, buses, semis, and even semis with added trailers, regardless of what our road designers thought or continue to think. It appears to have been designed to fail. Some of the hard curbs were changed to sloping ones that cause a vehicle to lean. That alone seems to inficate a lack of forethought. The damage and report may be due to insttention to signage but the circle is still simply too tight even under the best of conditions for far too many of the vehicle designs on our roads for safe use.
