If there is one popular exit e.g. a path that takes cars to the motorway then the last entry point to the roundabout prior to the popular exit struggles to get space for a car to enter the roundabout. At least with traffic lights each entry point gets it's turn in the sun.

Divergent diamond?

This??

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

That is it in all of its glory. The lanes switch on the overpass. Everything is controlled by lights getting onto the bridge.

Though it would be more entertaining if the lights weren't there.

Invisible, undetectable results don’t count
