The Roundabout Or The 4-Way Intersection? Which One Is Better?

The Mythbusters lads simply decided to examine these two intersection models in detail to clarify which was the better one.
Their way of measuring efficiency was to see how many cars could cross the intersection during a given period of time.

Putting this test aside, roundabouts are also better when it comes to energy efficiency. Stopping and re-accelerating, which happens in a 4-way intersection, is neither economical nor sustainable.

Another thing, roundabouts are also safer.
