A recent accident at a 3 lane roundabout has raised concerns amongst local residents and pedestrians about safety.  The roundabouts are still a new concept for many in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge.  As a result car drivers need to exercise extra caution when entering and exiting the roundabout.  This may require slower speeds nearing the roundabout, rumble strips or other devices to assist in controlling speed.  Also, the interaction between pedestrians, bicyclists and car drivers needs to be better identified.  For example, after entering a roundabout is a car driver or motorcycle driver required to stop for pedestrians to allow them to cross the road.  What actions should the pedestrian take to signal their intention to proceed.
