I’m having a problem with traffic circles, or roundabouts as they’re sometimes called. They’re apt to be too small as to diameter. The one on Route 101 in Peterborough next to Shaw’s is a case in point.

Should there be minimum sizes based on traffic volume and number of entrances and exits?

If there isn’t space enough for a big-enough circle, better to have stop signs or traffic lights.
