They would prevent a heck of a lot of accidents and traffic jams.

And eliminate some of the idiot gene pool who can't understand how they work

We have roundabouts in Australia and they work fairly well, but get in a mess when the intersection gets too busy, so then they are converted to lights.

Lights on roundabouts really don't work they just cause traffic jams, I recall one set of about 5 lights on one roundabout that caused chaos and were switched off. Quite often on normal intersections when the lights fail the traffic moves more freely.
