So not far from where I live they've had a street torn up to replace a significant portion of the road with not one but two roundabouts to "improve traffic flow". This construction has been going on for a while because the road can't easily be closed down. They've just opened up half of each of the roundabouts and have had a few accidents already.

Traffic didn't flow down a portion of this road because the two traffic lights that came one after another were always set alternately, meaning when one was red the other was green. But, by all means build two roundabouts when setting traffic lights correctly would have solved the issue.
