The City of Wilmington needed a solution to better protect drivers and police officers at 4-way intersections following a natural disaster like hurricanes. Typically, two rotations of four officers will be assigned to intersections where the traffic lights are out. The City of Wilmington came up with the idea to use ‘cones’ as a temporary roundabout at those intersections.
One police officer is assigned to the intersection with the cones setup around the police car as a barrier warning drivers to slow down and go around. The method improved safety at the intersections as there have been no wrecks using the temporary roundabouts. And, with one policer assigned to work the roundabout, the city could make more officers available for other calls.
