The UK is quietly replacing roundabouts with traffic lights

Came across this interesting article:

'Traffic lights are so dictatorial' ... but are roundabouts on the way out?

The UK is quietly replacing roundabouts with traffic lights. The US is doing the exact opposite. Both cite safety and traffic flow. So who is right?

That is pretty interesting. I like roundabouts we have in town like the peanut on Saddle Creek and the one near Elmwood. I think they do well in those situations. When I was in Denver in March they had a double roundabout off of an interstate exit and holy cow was that hectic. It kept traffic flowing I guess, but that might have been second the most stressed I have ever been while driving.
