Going Round in Circles? The Countries That Prefer Roundabouts #infographic

Roundabouts make it pointless to wait at traffic signals, but for those drivers who are unfamiliar with them, they may mean an extra stress factor. Depending on their style, for cyclists and pedestrians, they can be more difficult to cross. 

For the driver, however, it has been shown that a easier and safer way to pass around an intersection is by roundabouts. Additional benefits of going round in circles are saving space (because there is no need for many lanes leading to a stop light) and decreased costs (because of improved maintenance).

The roundabout has been made their go-to intersection by some countries in Europe, especially France and Spain. France has 967 traffic circles per million people, according to an appraisal by the blog erdavis.com. In Spain, the number of people is much lower, at 591 per million, but it is still high compared to elsewhere. Other nations also shy away from using the networks, such as the United States and Germany.
