Let's use roundabouts instead of traffic lights

As my husband and I sit at nearly every stoplight when we go from place to place in the Fresno/Clovis area, I began to think why don't we do like Australia, New Zealand and England. The majority of their intersections are roundabouts.

We should consider all intersections from this point on that are designated to have stoplights should instead have roundabouts. This way the traffic would be constantly moving, no stopping and waiting for the light to change green, emitting toxic fumes while we sit there, and we would actually save on gasoline. I know we could get the knack of the roundabout because we all seem to be doing quite well at the roundabout in River Park.

It just seems to make sense.
