How about a speed bump?

I have been using the McTavish/Pat Bay interchange since its opening but am seriously thinking of avoiding it in future due to one particularly bad spot where Canora joins the roundabout.

It is almost a straight line from Canora to the exit south to Victoria and despite the obvious signage to give way, many motorists drive straight through without stopping.

It can be quite stressful driving around the circle and wondering if the fast approaching vehicle on Canora is going to stop for you.

Maybe a speed bump, (or stop sign as a last resort), at this location would be an added reminder to give way to traffic on the roundabout. It would be interesting to know the statistics for accidents at this location.

With more traffic from housing development on Canora and airport expansion in the future, the problem will only get worse.
