According to the Charlotte Observer, the country road near the town of Mooresville where NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was caught speeding in May 2011 is getting a roundabout to slow speeders and reduce the number of wrecks. The North Carolina Department of Transportation had a public meeting scheduled Tuesday evening to discuss the proposed reconfiguration at the intersection of Perth and Cornelius Roads. According to the report, slower speeds and fewer conflict points at the proposed roundabout would reduce the frequency and severity of wrecks at the intersection. Busch pled guilty to driving 128 miles per hour on that May day six years ago, on a road with a posted speed limit of forty-five. The driver was behind the wheel of a Lexus L-F-A high-performance vehicle. Busch was placed on probation for a year, fined one thousand dollars and agreed to sponsor ten driving schools that benefited more than three hundred teenage drivers.
