Roundabouts

Roundabouts have been used in Europe for many decades and are becoming increasingly popular in North America.  Roundabouts are used as intersection solutions, are circular in shape and improve traffic flow greatly.  They reduce the possibility for crashes that may involve serious injury because they reduce the chance of head-on collisions.
