36: Roundabouts work better!

Problem: A roundabout works better than a traffic light intersection. This has been proven over and over again. 

Still so many classic intersections although:

1: the traffic flow capacity of a comparable roundabout is better,

2: the chances of serious injuries is much less, 

3: with no electronics involved, the operational costs are much less.

4: changing intersections without traffic lights also works as a speed reducing measure for instance at the entrance of a village.

Solution: So if we are serious about reducing the amount of injured and killed people, roundabouts need to be rolled out in a much higher pace.
