How to Drive a Roundabout

General information

Roundabouts are designed to make intersections safer and more efficient for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.

  • Traffic travels counter-clockwise around a center island
  • Vehicles entering and exiting a roundabout must yield to pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Slow down as you approach the roundabout and wait to merge until there is a big enough gap to enter safely
  • Use your turn signals when exiting the roundabout
  • If you miss your exit, continue around until you return 

Please explore the brochures below on how to drive a roundabout and how they improve safety on roads.
