Support the Installation of a Roundabout at the Highway 21 and Huron County Road 83 Intersection

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:

WHEREAS, roundabouts have been proven to help enhance safety, allow for the continuous flow of traffic, and reduce idling and air pollution; and

WHEREAS, a 2001 study conducted by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety found that converting intersections from traffic signals or stop signs to roundabouts reduced injury crashes by 80 percent, and all crashes by 47 percent; and

WHEREAS, roundabouts significantly reduce T-bone, left-turn and head-on collisions responsible for severe injury; and

WHEREAS, the average daily number of vehicles passing through the Highway 21 and Huron County Road 83 intersection in 2016 was 3,950; and

WHEREAS, several collisions at the intersection of Highway 21 and Huron County Road 83 have already left motorists injured, including one incident in 2015 that sent 10 people to hospital with injuries; and

THEREFORE, we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to install a roundabout at the intersection of Highway 21 and Huron County Road 83 to ensure the safety of motorists.
