The daily traffic and accidents on 85 have to be looked at for address. Having lived overseas for many years I have come to appreciate the value of traffic circles for single point destination routes such as 85. Part of the idea is to continue constant traffic movement and to promote zipper effect merging. The constant movement will discourage motorists to stay off their mobile devices. Doing so will mitigate the risk and tragedy of motorist accidents. These accidents occur almost daily. At the intersection on PJ Adams would be a great spot to transform the intersection into a large traffic circle.
Another logical reason to introduce traffic circles in alternate places on 85 is for the purpose of redirection. Many motorists are subject to making potentially dangerous U turns in order to reach their destinations. The use of traffic circle alleviates the danger of U turns and gives motorists a natural recourse to a safe turn around.
