When entrances are straight across from each other, you have to look 3 ways (left, right, and straight ahead) for oncoming traffic instead of just 2 ways (left and right). Then, there's the indecision as to which person should go first...you or the person straight across from you. Then, there are plenty of people who do not use turn signals, so yoy have no idea which way they intend to turn.

They had several accidents there which is why the light was installed.

Just put in the roundabout and be done with it. That's what they did at Honore & Mattamy.

I'd agree with you if all those staggered entrances never require additional traffic control.
