That's very creative. Should give speeders incentive to not drive over the traffic circle.

The fire hydrant hasn't slowed too many people down.

It looks like Duke Park now has the biggest balls of them all!

I must say in comment to comment, that the hydrant is really badly placed even when you are driving slowly and carefully.

in defense of the defenseless hydrant, it was there before the circle was... the width of the circle ate up a little bit of buffer when it was installed... plus, before the circle, cars used to glide by parallel to the hydrant, rather than jog the circle, putting their front bumper on a direct collision course... naturally, i wish the city had moved the hydrant as part of the deal, but how realistic is that in a city where we pay extra to have our yard waste disposed of in the same hole our garbage is...

The hydrant is a good 12 inches, maybe even 18 inches, in from the curb. (I'll measure it next time i'm there.)If you're navigating the circle at the suggested speed of 15, even 20 mph, it should not be a problem.

I concur, if drivers drove the suggested speed it wouldn't be a problem. Same for the Trinity / Glendale circle where the Trinity traffic appears to often speed up so they won't have to yeild to someone entering the circle from Glendale. Both circles turn into a game of chicken for the Glendale (north / south ) drivers. Love the new bowling circle art btw.

I take it back. The current placement of the hydrant is pretty damn close to the curb. So y'all better slow down heading west on Markham at Glendale.

Since 1949, Durhamites have slept soundly, secure in the knowledge that, in our town, erection can be depended upon. Now, thanks to the power of the internets, we can spread that security all over the world.
For such an enlightened, tolerant guy, I sure get pissed off easy.
