They don't use roundabouts hardly at all the USA -So why should we? They prefer traffic lights at busy junctions or just four-way stops.
But maybe they're not too worried about the benefits of roundabouts - like a 75% reduction in crash injuries or 20% reductions in traffic delays and reduced maintenance of traffic signals - typically 5k per juntion per year.
They don't even talk about greenhouse gas savings for roundabouts versus regular junctions. But then everyone knows that's just a swindle - the greenhouse gas swindle. :)
