There are a lot of roundabouts in our area and they manage the traffic well but have you seen vehicles passing through an roundabout in a manner that ignores the road rules?
Here's a reminder of just a few of the road rules (but not all):
- Approaching a roundabout: Vehicles entering a roundabout must give way to any vehicle already in the roundabout.
- Giving way at a roundabout: The driver must slow down and if necessary, stop to avoid a collision.
- Exiting a roundabout: If practical, you must always signal left when exiting a roundabout.
For a complete list of the rules that govern the use of a roundabout go to the RMS website:
