Roundabouts aren’t always efficient

Re: Best traffic-calming plan depends on where you are, Dec. 21.

Roundabouts were very efficient when traffic was less dense. Europeans took to them to the extent that a much larger proportion of cars remained standard shifters, due to the fact that cars did not have to come to a dead stop, as they must with traffic lights.
