Researchers and practitioners often discuss which types of junctions are more efficient in urban territories. Consequently, a proper decision is important in order to minimize the costs of infrastructure for users and government. The aim of the study is to assess and compare operation of roundabouts and signal-controlled intersections under various traffic conditions. The study is based on traffic measurements and data about road accidents. Efficiency of operation is calculated and compared, proposals are given.

Keywords: Traffic safety; roundabouts; signal-controlled intersections; Kaunas City.
