What to do at a roundabout

Roundabouts come in all shapes and sizes, but the basic rules that govern roundabouts are simple.

However that doesn't stop people interpreting the rules and indicating and lines in all sorts of odd ways, and unpredictable behaviour or cars suddenly swerving when they realise they are in the wrong entry or exit lane can lead to all sorts of accidents taking place around them.

A mini roundabout is one that is indicated by a blue circular sign with three arrows going around it clockwise. Always remember to give way to the right at a roundabout. That is the key rule!

Some large roundabouts can be quite intimidating, particularly if there are several lanes and it a large roundabout - often you will for instance be in the right hand most lane because you are going to be turning right, but of course when you leave the roundabout you will be leaving to the left.

Therefore to deal with this and the fact that other road users may be chopping and changing lanes, you should ensure that you drive at a slower speed - go at a pace that enables you to take yur time and you should be fine.

If you are approaching a roundabout for the first time then take heart that in most cases the lanes are clearly labelled, and so if you need a particular road it will be marked on the entry to the roundabout. With many roundabouts you can go a certain way from more than one lane, so just ensure that you are in one of the correct lanes.
