Why the hell aren't roundabouts/traffic circles more common? They're all over Europe and they're much more efficient than having stoplights everywhere!

More expensive? How so? Because for light-controlled intersections you need to set up the posts, run the electrical wire, set up the control box, possibly install sensors in the ground, then there's the cost of the electricity to run the lights as well as the time and cost of maintenance, e.g. replacing light bulbs. Isn't is much cheaper to just build the little island and paint around it, then the intersection is done?
