Favor Roundabouts

Roundabouts are used in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand with success. They reduce fuel usage and reduce pollution due to less stops and starts and reduce cost because there is no equipment to install and repair.

Modern roundabouts are different than the old traffic cirlces and handle more traffic as well and reduce crashes. Check out the following link from the Arizona DOT: http://www.azdot.gov/CCpartnerships/roundabouts/faq.asp

I would be interested in the poster's evidence, a website perhaps, that discuss where East Coast states are removing traffic cirlces.
