How to drive Multi-Lane Roundabouts
Slow down to 15 to 20 mph when approaching the roundabout.
Choose the appropriate lane. Just like a standard intersection, you must choose the proper lane for your destination based on lane markings prior to entering the roundabout intersection. Do not change lanes in the roundabout.
Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks . . .It's the Law!
Yield to traffic that is already in the circle approaching from the left. Never merge. Wait for a gap in traffic, then carefully proceed into the roundabout.
Proceed based on the lane you have chosen and exit appropriately. Do not change lanes in the roundabout.
- For right turns, travel in the right lane and exit based on the exit lane markings.
- For left turns, travel in the left lane.
- For continuing forward, remain in the same lane you entered.
By understanding what a modern roundabout is and how it works, motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians can travel through intersections easier and more safely.
