Roundabouts

Apparently, the U.S. Is increasing the usage of roundabouts according reportage heard on NPR. I’ve always liked them–no arbitrary light timing, etc., not to mention they are reported minimize certain types of crashes (intersections, etc.) but there are at least two problems with them: Americans’ inability to merge or yield. Watching the start of an incident-free F1 race shows me that people can proceed at least a little faster without bashing into one another.
