What is a 'no-build alliterative'? It is a term I'm not familiar with.

Given the traffic in the region, gamblers and commuters combined with those monster casino busses, a round about is the LAST thing that should be put in there. I'd vote for the 'no build' option. My in-laws from Utah snowbird here in Fallbrook and they make the rounds 3 or 4 times a week hitting the various casinos. They have one round about that has been in place in Prove for a few years now, and they can't seem to ever exit the darn thing. It takes a certain amount of aggressive driving to handle those with ease. I don't see that with many of the crowd that use 76.

There's a round-about at Cannon Road and Legoland Drive that works very well. The expense of adding a traffic signal seems like going overboard for that road at this time.

It's normally ok, but during AM/PM rush hours it's like a no holds barred. I know because I work in the office building on the first block after the round about. Some people do not yield at all (they think everyone should yield for them)!
