Roundabouts

 

​​Thumbs up to roundabout respect!​ Do you know how to use a roundabout correctly?

Some roundabouts have more than one lane in each direc​tion, and these are marked with lanes and arrows which help drivers enter and leave the roundabout correctly. However, not all roundabouts are marked the same way, so take extra care - especially at the exits.

Look out for large vehicles that may not be able to stay in their lane, and those travelling too fast for the roundabout or the condi​tions.

Roundabout rules

When coming up to a roundabout

When coming up to a roundabout:

  • ​Slow down and be prepared to give way.
  • Be in the correct lane at a multi-lane roundabout.


When turning left


If you’re turning left at the first exit of a roundabout:

  • Signal left as you come up to the roundabout.

When going straight

 

If you’re going straight through a roundabout:

  • Don’t signal as you come up to the roundabout.
  • Signal left as you pass the exit before the one you wish to take.


When travelling more than halfway round​​


If you’re travelling more than halfway round a roundabout:

  • Signal right as you come up to the roundabout.
  • Signal left as you pass the exit before the one you wish to take.​
