The Roundabouts are open now, please read the following rules of driving if you are unaware of how to navigate your way through.
How Do I drive the Roundabouts? Click the link below to view a video explaining the Rules of the Road and how to navigate a Roundabout.
1.-SLOW DOWN when approaching the Roundabouts!
2.-ALWAYS YEILD BEFORE ENTERING the Roundabout- Cars and trucks within the Roundabout have the right of way and DO NOT stop for you to enter. When you have a clear opening you go forward and enter. There can be more than one vehicle within the Roundabout.
3.-ONCE YOU ARE IN THE ROUNDABOUT YOU SHOULD NOT STOP OR YIELD TO LET TRAFFIC IN- use your turn signals when you have reached your desired exit. If you miss your exit, it is fine to go around the Roundabout again.
4.-ROUNDABOUTS ALWAYS GO COUNTER CLOCKWISE!- In other words you are ALWAYS going to the right to get to your exit.
Have more questions about the Roundabouts? Please check out the website below for answers to your questions that may help.
