A modern roundabout is an unsignalized circular intersection used to maximize safety, minimize traffic delay, and provide aesthetic benefits.

How to Navigate a Roundabout

  • When entering a roundabout, motorists should remember:
  • Slow down as you approach the intersection. 
  • Select proper lane (if navigating a multi-lane roundabout) based on signing and striping.
  • Look and stop for pedestrians.
  • Yield to all vehicles already in the roundabout.
  • Do not pass vehicles or change lanes within the roundabout.
  •  If you encounter an emergency vehicle, continue to your planned exit.
