It's three where a vehicle actually hit the building. Could you imagine if that was your shop in that spot?
The biggest issue I have with that couplet is where it meets Sandy and at Burnside because it I often times stop and forget that we can make a right on a red light after coming to a stop, then I forget that we can make a left onto a one way at the Sandy stop until someone goes.
Honestly seeing that it is not an actual roundabout, I would almost say it would be better to have "no turn on red" to help better prevent accidents at those two intersections, or to have a well marked, "yield to oncoming traffic" sign...but the reality is that I think people are still getting use to that change, I know I rarely use those streets because I hated the original street pattern and now I have almost no need to drive through that area except those random rare times when I forget those changes have happened there.
