Sad day more many, but probably happy one for others invented the mini roundabout has died:

Frank Blackmore became frustrated with hold ups at conventional junctions, and campaigned for a system of priority from the right. When this failed to be accepted, he came up with the idea of a small roundabout with no centre. The first was installed in Peterborough 1969 with Blackmore, in attendance, shouting instructions at motorists through a loud hailer.

Oh well, were all just keep going around in circles
