FAQs - How do I use a traffic circle/roundabout?

Question - How do I use a traffic circle/roundabout?

Traffic circles and roundabouts benefit motorists by reducing traffic accidents and traffic delays. Here is how to do it:

Approach

  • Reduce your speed.
  • Watch for signs that may help you find your exit.
  • Watch for people using the crosswalk, and be ready to stop.

Yield

  • Yield to traffic already in the roundabout that comes from your immediate left before you enter.

Enter

  • Enter the roundabout to your right (a counter clockwise direction) when there is a gap in traffic and you feel it is safe to do so.
  • Continue until you reach your exit.

Exit

  • Never come to a full stop in a roundabout unless traffic conditions require it.
  • Use your right turn signal to let other road users know where you plan to exit.
  • Exit at a slow speed. As you exit, watch for people using the crosswalk, and be ready to stop.
  • If you miss your exit, keep going around the roundabout until you reach it again.
