One of the tools of the traffic trade is the roundabout. A roundabout is a one-way circular intersection without a traffic signal or stop signs in which traffic flows around a center island with yield control at the entry points and gives priority to vehicles within the roundabout. This type of intersection is designed to minimize motorist delay and provide safe and orderly operation by assignment of right-of-way.
Motorists should determine where they want to go, approach the roundabout as you would a typical four-way intersection, stay to the right of the center island and slow down to 10 – 15 miles per hour. Watch for bicyclists and allow for them to merge into the entry lane. Watch for and yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk or waiting to cross. YIELD to traffic already in the roundabout. DO NOT TURN LEFT AT THE CENTER ISLAND.
