It also appears that many people in Seattle neighborhoods do not know how to use our traffic circles, used at many intersections in place of stop signs as a speed calming device.
Well apparently someone has given some personality to one of the circles in our neighborhood.
A one foot-tall cow and a silly headstone have mysteriously popped up on the circle at NE 130th Street and 23rd Ave NE.
The odd objects are fun to look at while slowing as you approach the circle and can offer a smile during a drive home or to Fred Meyer for milk. Kids walking to Olympic Hills probably also notice the oddities as they cross the intersection in the marked crosswalk.
Could they be the beginning of a new guriella art installation in our neighborhood?
See photos below.
By the way, the proper way to use a traffic circle is to travel to the right, counterclockwise, even when making a left turn. Please try to use them properly.
