How to Navigate a Traffic Circle Correctly:

Traffic circles are there to help ease congestion and maintain a steady flow. If you’re not used to them, circles in big cities can be a tad overwhelming – people have been known to head in the wrong direction.

The general rule is to yield to your right; there are exceptions, though, so watch out for any surprise yield-signs.

  1. Slow down as you approach the roundabout. Only stop if you need to.
  2. Don’t enter a traffic circle at too high a speed; doing so could cause an accident.
  3. Make sure you look at all signage and road markings to ensure you know which lane you should be in to take the exit you’re looking for.
  4. When you’re about to approach your exit, indicate out of the circle and check your corresponding blind spot before proceeding.
  5. Pay close attention to the cars around you – many drivers use a circle incorrectly.
