There were two design enhancements I thought would be useful for the Leucadia Boulevard improvement project (click here for the earlier post). One was a right turn lane on northbound Vulcan, and the other was dealing with the fire hydrants.
At extra cost to the taxpayer, the right turn lane was added. The hydrants remained unprotected. If they have to be exposed on the corners of the roundabout without protection, I'd put them on the southwest or northeast side of the roundabout, where they are not in the line of sight of the dominant traffic flow. Is there a reason they are where they are?
This just in:
From the comments section: Another wasted driver crashed going through a roundabout. A wasted old dude took out a fire hydrant and streetlight at Hermes. He could barely walk. More from the comments section: the guy who lost control of the car was neither drunk nor diabetic, however he was on some medication
