Roundabouts

Who gives way at a roundabout?

When approaching a roundabout you must give way to all vehicles already on the roundabout.

When to turn off a multi-lane roundabout

You can position your car to be in the correct lane at a roundabout by looking for signs, lane markings and arrows when approaching the roundabout.

Unless traffic lane arrows indicate otherwise, if you want to:

 

  • turn right, use the right lane
  • turn left, use the left lane
  • go straight ahead, use either lane.

 

Turning right

  1. Position your vehicle in the right lane, unless arrows on the road or signs indicate otherwise.
  2. Use your right left indicator as you approach and enter the roundabout.
  3. Give way to all vehicles already on the roundabout.
  4. Remain in the right lane as you complete your turn.
  5. Continue to use your right indicator as you exit the roundabout.
  6. Stop indicating once you have exited the roundabout.

 

Turning left or U-turns

  1. Position your vehicle in the left lane, unless arrows on the road or signs indicate otherwise.
  2. Use your left indicator as you approach and enter the roundabout.
  3. Give way to all vehicles already on the roundabout.
  4. Before exiting, use your right indicator and follow the exit lane marking.
  5. Stop indicating once you have exited the roundabout.

Never turn left from the right lane unless arrows on the road indicate that you can.

 

Signaling on roundabouts is easy, when you know the rules.

Going straight ahead

  1. Position your vehicle in either lane unless the arrows on the road or signs indicate otherwise.
  2. There is no need to use your indicator until you are ready to exit the roundabout.
  3. Give way to all vehicles already on the roundabout.
  4. Before exiting, use your right indicator and follow the exit lane marking.
  5. Stop indicating once you have exited the roundabout.
