They have. You must have missed them.

It's simple:

- Steady red arrow - stop and stay (no turn on red)
- Flashing red arrow - stop, then proceed when the way is clear
- Steady yellow arrow - your right of way is ending
- Flashing yellow arrow - yield to conflicting traffic
- Steady green arrow - proceed, you have a cleared right of way

- Steady circular red - stop (turn on red if permitted)
- Flashing circular red - stop, then proceed when the way is clear
- Steady circular yellow - your right of way is ending
- Flashing circular yellow - proceed with caution, left and right turns yield to conflicts
- Steady circular green - proceed, left and right turns yield to conflicts

Michigan has a flashing red in the turn lane which indicates you may proceed after stopping and assuring you have enough room to turn before oncoming raffic.

Roundabouts are great, if you know what you're doing. My issue is that they are rarely built large enough for tractor trailers to get through easily.
