We have so many roundabouts

Do you know the rules?

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:
