The roundabouts at Lee Road and Whitmore Lake Road are among the most-dangerous for crashes in Michigan.

While the majority of the state’s most-dangerous roundabouts on the list are in Oakland County, Livingston County’s most-famous roundabouts, located in Green Oak Township by the Village Place Shopping Center, snagged the No. 10 spot on the list with 49 crashes at the Green Oak Township roundabouts, and no injuries.

The rankings are based on statistics compiled by the Michigan State Police Office of Highway Safety.

The roundabouts also made the list of the most-dangerous intersections in Livingston County, coming in at Nos. 7 and 8, based on data published on the Michigan State Police Office of Highway Safety Planning’s Michigan Crash Facts website.

The Livingston County Road Commission spent over $1 million last year to remove the outside lanes from the roundabouts, a move they say will make them safer and less confusing.
