If you've read my book, you'll know I prefer roundabouts to the stop signs and traffic signals that clog up American roads. Now there's scientific proof that roundabouts are superior.
Don't believe me? Believe Mythbusters. Watch the segment of Mythbusters above, if you can. Spoiler: Roundabouts are better. There, you don't have to listen to the whole silly and rather condescending narrative. More cars go through the intersection via roundabout than by four way stop: 385 drivers via four-way stop vs. 460 in the roundabouts. (Maybe the word "stop" in the name should be a clue.)
Next, we'll prove that British television is better than American telly. I sat through an American archaeology program the other day, an "is-this-an-ancient-monument-or-not" show, and I couldn't believe how much better Time Team would have handled the question. It's as if they think their viewing audience are idiots, and I know that despite a few prominent examples, that's not the case.
Replace your stop signs with roundabouts, America. Your commutes will thank you.
