Lane choice is critical
Example: Two-lane roundabout

Driving a roundabout with two or more lanes
Observe and obey the signs and arrows to determine which lane to use before entering a roundabout.

  • Black and white signs on the side of the road and white arrows on the road will show the correct lane to use.
  • To make a left turn, be in the left lane or other lanes that are signed and marked as left turn lanes.
  • To make a right right lane or other lanes that are signed and marked as right turn lanes.
  • To go straight, observe the signs and arrows to see what lane is correct.

Steps for driving a roundabout:

  1. Slow down. Obey traffic signs.
  2. Yield to pedestrians and bicyclists.
  3. Yield to traffic on your left already in the roundabout.
  4. Enter the roundabout when there is a safe gap in traffic.
  5. Keep your speed low within the roundabout and stay in your lane.
  6. As you approach your exit, turn on your right turn signal.
  7. Yield to pedestrians and bicycles as you exit.
