The RUF concept can be made to look very attractive, so that people will consider the traffic system as a natural part of their cityscape.

Junctions in a RUF system are far smaller than junctions in a highway system of comparable capacity. This is due to the fact that the low speed (20 mph) while passing the junction makes it possible to use very narrow radius of curvature (26 m). With junctions 3 miles apart, the average speed will still be high (75 mph).
