How to navigate through the new Roundabout:

Slow Down when approaching the Roundabout.

REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST YIELD TO ONCOMING TRAFFIC IN ROUDABOUT

Making a left turn movement at a multi-lane roundabout

  1. Find street and direction in which you wish to go on roundabout signs before intersection.
  2. When approaching the roundabout, you should be in the left-hand lane to make a left-hand turn.
  3. As you approach the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.
  4. Yield to oncoming traffic at the yield line.
  5. When sufficient space and time to enter traffic occur, enter the roundabout. You should enter to the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway.
  6. Use your right turn signal to let other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians know that you are exiting the roundabout at the next exit as soon as you pass the exit prior to the desired exit.
  7. Stay to the left, the inside path, until you come to the desired exit.
  8. You will now proceed from the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway, across the outside path (right side), and exit the roundabout in the inside (left) exit lane. When exiting from the inside path, watch for vehicles on the outside path that may continue to circulate around the roundabout.
  9. As you exit the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.

Left Turn on Roundabout

 

Making a through movement at a multi-lane roundabout

  1. Find street and direction in which you wish to go on roundabout signs located before intersection.
  2. In the case of a roundabout, either lane that enters the roundabout can be used to go straight through the intersection.
  3. As you approach the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.
  4. Yield to oncoming traffic at the yield line.
  5. When sufficient space and time to enter traffic occur, enter the roundabout.
  6. Maintain your path upon entering until you come to the desired exit. If you enter from the left lane you should proceed to the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway. If you enter from the right lane you should proceed to the outside path (right side) of the circulatory roadway.
  7. Use your right turn signal to let other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians know that you are exiting the roundabout at the next exit as soon as you pass the exit prior to the desired exit.
  8. You should maintain your path through the exiting maneuver. If you exit from the outside path (right side) of the circulatory roadway you should proceed to the right (outside) exit lane. If you exit from the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway you should proceed to the left (inside) exit lane. When exiting from the inside path, watch for vehicles on the outside path that may continue to circulate around the roundabout.
  9. As you exit the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.
