I've always thought of roundabouts being a substitute for four-way stops rather than stop lights in their simplest form.

As for the SPUI, I think it's best when the majority of traffic is getting onto or off of the freeway, and the traffic which does get on the freeway does so from both directions of the surface street and onto both directions of the interstate. Lenox is the perfect example of this. Many interchanges, however, have most traffic going in one direction or the other. I think the intown exits along 75/85/400, as well as top-end perimeter, are the ones where this would work best.

The issue of drivers sucking is a separate one. In this country, it's simply way too easy to get your license. If we are willing to recognize that our road design assumptions are unusually limited due to how bad our drivers are, then I think we need to focus on policing bad driving (NOT simply speeding) and implement a more European style of driver's license testing, where you actually have extensive drive time with the person who evaluates you, and the person who evaluates you actually seems somewhat competent and professional (imagine that).
