The government never sleeps, or so it would seem from this answer to Parliamentary questions from Hansard, April 1996:

Mr. Norris In line with the Government’s policy of reducing all road traffic accidents, safety at roundabouts is kept under constant review.
Alas this constant vigilance wasn’t sufficient to help Haringey Council.
