To the editor:

(From the May 29 Echo Press editorial, "Don't fear roundabouts - they work"): "The latest suggestion from a firm hired by MnDOT recommends placing a multi-lane roundabout at the intersection of Third Avenue and Highway 29, near Elden's Fresh Foods in Alexandria.

"While the firm's study showed it would reduce delays 50 percent, we're still not convinced it's the best option and neither is the public."

So much for "no concern" about being sideswiped or being cut off!
