Safest option? You pick.

December 15, 2011

Drivers are experiencing a Catawba County first in Conover — the first roundabout.

The roundabout was built at County Home Road and Northern Drive NW, near the new Newton-Conover Middle School. The N.C. Department of Transportation says roundabouts are safer than traditional intersections with stop signs or traffic signals.

Which intersection design do you believe is safest? Vote now at observernewsonline.com.
