City to install new E-Lane on Roundabouts for Distracted Drivers

Artist Rendering of proposed E-Lane

4/2/18 Update: Thank you everyone for enjoying our annual April Fool’s joke. While we are not installing E-Lanes into any of our roundabouts, we do urge everyone to set down those digital devices and focus on the road while driving. Thank you!

To address mounting concerns over distracted driving, the City of Ferndale is installing an “E-Lane” on all City roundabouts. This would allow drivers that are currently using a digital device to travel over the roundabout rather than navigate the difficult circular traffic pattern.

“I understand this may be a radical solution,” said Communications Officer Riley Sweeney, “But better to have a clear passage through the intersection than ask drivers to do something difficult like set down their phones.”

These new E-Lanes are set to be installed in the coming months, so stay tuned for traffic updates. You can get the latest information on road closures through our facebook page and city website, accessible on your Android or Apple mobile devices.
