Roundabouts are somewhat common nowadays in the US and follow the same
rules as European roundabouts: entering traffic yields to circle traffic.
Many intersections, such as the rotaries in Massachusetts, follow these
rules despite not being signed as "roundabouts."

We do, however, still have many oldschool traffic circles with odd yielding
rules, or just nothing signed at all. These are typically tagged with
junction=circular.
