Roughly 25% of all traffic fatalities in the United States are associated with intersections.

Roundabouts are one solution for building safer intersections.

When compared to stop-controlled and signalized intersections, roundabouts reduce crashes where people are seriously hurt or killed by 78-82%. This is achieved by reducing the number of conflict points and lowering the speeds of vehicles moving through the intersection.
