Roundabouts are becoming more popular across North Dakota.
Traffic engineers say they’re safer than normal intersections.
"You have lower speeds going into an intersection," said North Dakota Department of Transportation traffic operations engineer Justin Schlosser. "You also have reduced conflict points -- points where vehicles can run into each other."
Schlosser said that's a lot less than in a "signalized" intersection or stop sign controlled intersection.
"That's because everyone is going in the same direction," Schlosser said.
