1 Transportation Tuesday TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY ROUNDABOUTS THERE’S NOTHING MAGIC ABOUT THEM

2 Transportation Tuesday ROUNDABOUTS MADE SIMPLE Roundabouts are clever traffic control devices that keep traffic moving smoothly - as long as drivers know how to use them. Approaching a roundabout … take notice and act on the information you are given - look for direction signs, traffic lights, lane markings, stop signs Arriving at a roundabout … slow down - roundabouts are designed for speeds of mph (25-30 kph) decide what exit you will need and get in the right lane pay attention to the other traffic speed and direction give way or stop - priority goes to traffic already on the roundabout Always give priority to the left

3 Transportation Tuesday SIGNALING let everyone know what you’re doing If taking the first exit … If taking an intermediate exit … When taking the last exit, or going full circle … signal left and approach in the left hand lane keep to the left and keep signaling when you pass the exit before yours, move into position to exit signal right and leave the roundabout signal right and approach in the right hand lane keep to the right and keep signaling until you have turned do not signal at first be in the right or middle lane when your exit is next, signal right and move into position MANOEUVRESIGNALMIRROR

4 Transportation Tuesday WATCH OUT FOR...  Pedestrians … they may be crossing the approach and exit roads  Newspaper sellers running between cars  Traffic crossing in front of you, especially vehicles intending to leave at the next exit  Traffic in the wrong position (look at their indicators) give them a break … we’ve all done it  Motorcyclists and bicyclists who may be unsure of the exit procedure - give them space  Long vehicles - they might take a different lane when approaching to allow for their trailers … watch their signals … don’t cut them up

5 Transportation Tuesday DON’T FORGET  Once you’re on the roundabout … keep moving  If you queued to get onto the roundabout … make sure the car in front has moved away before you start to move  If you miss your exit … continue around until you come to it again NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! reverse on a roundabout
