Warrnambool City councillors recently approved the creation of zebra crossings and speed humps on roundabouts in the city.
Mr Cann told Warrnambool paper The Standard roundabout zebra crossings in Warragul “caused traffic chaos.”
“The zebra crossings were impractical – stupid,” Mr Cann said.
“Traffic banked up across the intersection. It caused conflict between two sets of road rules – stopping for pedestrians and stopping in a roundabout.”
Zebra crossings on roundabouts in Warragul were removed shortly after introduction after a strong community backlash.
