Safety Issue Regarding Traffic Circles


The Village Board of Trustees has received a number of inquiries about the Wells Avenue Circle and Gotwald Circle.  Recently it has been reported that a number of vehicles are traversing the circles in the wrong direction.  On behalf of the Board and the community we would like to remind all residents to obey the traffic rules and only travel in a counterclockwise direction while maintaining a safe speed around the circle.  Apparently some drivers are attempting to travel in a clockwise direction in order to make a quicker left-hand turn rather than traveling the full ¾ distance around the circle.  

These two neighborhoods are heavily populated with many small children.  Please show consideration for your neighbors by driving slowly and following the posted one-way directional signage around the circles.  Thank you very much for your cooperation.  The Police Department has been informed of this safety issue and will be increasing enforcement in this area of the two traffic circles.
