    Ever since that ’roundabout’ was implemented at Wilson & Remembrance, it’s next to impossible to turn onto Wilson or cross from Richmond. The south bound Wilson flow of traffic never has a break, a light or another useless roundabout is needed at that intersection. There will be more & more accidents resulting from that poor planning of that roundabout & speeds are far too high in that area.
