"After spending decades constructing roads in residential areas that encourage speed and inattentive driving, traffic engineers wise up."

That doesn't seem to follow from Oconomowoc having to "remove several downtown buildings to make way for" this roundabout.

One hopes that wising up in commercial intersections will carry over to safer roads (right-angle turns, narrower streets, etc.) in residential areas.

Or it might not, while DOT might be mandating demolitions of businesses on every small town Main Street that's a state highway.

I always think of that scene when I see a roundabout!

True - multi-lane roundabouts are pretty incomprehensible to rookies.
