Roundabout in Surrey.

Roundabouts control traffic

They have one-way circulation around a central island, where entering traffic must yield the right-of-way to circulating traffic in the roundabout.

In some situations, roundabouts improve safety and traffic flow more than signalized intersections. This is because the roundabout's shape reduces speeds, and almost eliminates “T-bone”and head-on collisions.
