Drivers Still Figuring Out New Grand Blanc Roundabout
Every day I drive through the new roundabout located at Hill and Belsay roads in Grand Blanc and I'm amazed at how many people still don't know what they're doing.
According to ABC12, there have been only six accidents in the last six month which isn't bad at all but if people don't figure out that roundabout, there's going to be a hell of a lot more. Three were caused by failure to yield, two were rear-end collisions as drivers tried to go straight through it.
There have been numerous times that I've almost been blasted by a vehicle because the driver didn't yield, they just flew right through the roundabout. There's some dude I see nearly every day that NEVER stops, he just drives straight through. The other day a woman on her phone almost hit me because she had zero intentions of stopping while I was going through the roundabout. People are always in such a rush and not willing to wait their turn.
I love the roundabout and I'm so glad it's there but drivers need to realize that drivers in the roundabout have the right of way. You have to yield or stop for vehicles already in the intersection or proceed through without stopping.
