In New England, they’re called rotaries; in New Jersey, traffic circles; and in much of the rest of the English-speaking world, roundabouts. Many frustrated motorists might have a more colorful name.

There is an intersection in Farmington Hills, Mich., that some drivers try to avoid. The statistics show that this crossing, where the heavily traveled 14-Mile and Orchard Lake Roads meet, was the third most dangerous intersection in the state in 2019, according to Michigan Auto Law.

It’s a roundabout, a highway engineering concept meant to reduce accidents and congestion. In this case, it has arguably had the opposite effect. Statistics provided by Michigan Auto Law indicate it was the site of 178 crashes and 22 injuries in 2019. The state’s most dangerous intersection? It’s a roundabout as well.
