Four Washtenaw County police agencies are working together this month to increase education, compliance, and knowledge about driving through one of the county's 18 roundabouts.

89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry spoke with Sergeant William Clock of the Ann Arbor Police Department's Special Services division about the "roundabout enforcement project" underway now through the first of May.

Sgt. Clock says they may end up handing out some tickets to drivers, but the ultimate goal is to educate motorists on the safe and proper way to pass through a traffic roundabout.
