Roundabouts are designed to make intersections safer and more efficient for drivers and riders. However, driving through one could be pretty hectic as some drivers do not abide by the following guidelines which are required when negotiating a roundabout:..
- When going straight: Do not use your turn signals, approach on the right lane, keep on that lane while in the roundabout and when exiting.
- When making a right turn: Use your right turn signal and approach the roundabout on the right lane.
- When making a left turn: Use your left turn signal before entering the roundabout and approach on the left lane. Maintain the left lane until you leave the roundabout.
- When making a U-turn: Approach on the left lane with the left turn signal on. Switch off the turn signal before you exit the roundabout.
Finally, you need to yield to vehicles in the roundabout, maintain a single lane as much as possible, keep moving and avoid driving next to large/articulated vehicles.
