They're pretty common in Massachusetts. There's one by where I live, in Connecticut, that people call "The Circle". There was a Greek pizza joint called "Circle Pizza" but the guy sold it and it sucks now lol.

And I'm sure you'll be able to fit a multi-level roadway in the middle of a village.

Not a problem we have here, we're not all squished together like you silly Europeans...


More seriously, roundabouts are of course a very good solution to intersections, but not here in the US because as much as it pains me to say it, most of us are pretty shoddy drivers in comparison to the rest of the industrialized world...

people in america are jackasses and don't know how to use their indicators so roundabouts would never work

we had one in the museum district of downtown houston, i'm surprised i made it through as many times as i did without dying

People not indicating their exit/the fact they're heading right isn't just a problem in America. Looking at people's lights at a roundabout is a waste of time, all about dem wheels.

Most likely because we give people their license when their 16 after a ridiculously simple test

In that case, allow me to rephrase;

Too many American drivers have absolutely no idea what they're doing behind the wheel and would the the cause of the downfall of our civilization if roundabouts were implemented.

Agreed, a smart terrorist wouldn't need a bomb, just a construction company...
