Roadscapes Wednesday: Why The U.S. Hates Roundabouts

This is something I really don’t get, but why do Americans hate the roundabout or traffic circle?  I mean, roundabouts have continuously been ranked as the safest form of intersection on a road.  But somehow, Americans and those here in Alabama think roundabouts are horrible.  Would you rather navigate a traffic light intersection where someone could crash into you head on, or navigate a roundabout where speeds are slower?  The folks from Cheddar explore why Americans hate roundabouts, and what transportation leaders are doing to change the minds of Americans about the roundabout.
