Exhibit 23 summarizes the crossing performance for the Golden single-lane roundabout. In a comparison to other single-lane roundabouts, the Golden, CO, Single-Lane Golden roundabout showed a higher rate of driver yielding Roundabout Summary and a comparable rate of crossable gap occurrence. The rate of The field evaluation at the single-lane roundabout in Golden opportunity utilization was in the same general range as other did not provide statistical evidence of a learning effect by sites. For all compared sites, the between-subject variability the blind study participants or significant changes in driver was very large.
