Roundabouts

Be clear about you're going and make sure others know.

  1. Make sure you,re in the correct lane when you approach or enter multi-lane roundabouts-follow the lane arrows.
  2. Indicate before entering the roundabout only if you're turning left or right. Don't indicate before entering the roundabout if you're going straight ahead.
  3. As you enter the roundabout, give way to all traffic that will cross your path from your right.
  4. Start indicating left as you pass the exit before the one you are taking. Check over your shoulder before turning.
  5. Watch out for cyclists and other vehicles changing lanes.

If you get caught in the wrong lane,don't switch lanes suddenly-circle the roundabouts one more time,then exit.
