How to Use a Roundabout
5 Simple Rules for Driving a Multi-Lane Roundabout
- Choose your lane in advance of the roundabout;
- Slow down and yield to pedestrians;
- Yield to both lanes of traffic already in the roundabout;
- Do not change lanes inside the roundabout;
- Trucks will take up both lanes on the approach and within the roundabout, so give them plenty of room.
For specific examples of how to use a multi-lane roundabout use the map below. To use the map, press on an arrow in the lower left hand corner and follow the prompts. If you have your sound on, verbal cues will be given.
