No time to read a long-winded BLOnG? Welcome to the Three-Second-Stop mini-Blog.
Today’s Three Seconds: Roundabouts
Here’s what you need to know when you finally come face-to-face with the formidable roundabout sign:
**Traffic entering the roundabout must always yield to traffic already driving in the circle. **
Approach a roundabout much like you would a yield sign: slow down, be ready to stop if needed, and enter the circle when safe.
Why roundabouts? They minimize those deadly T-bone crashes at perpendicular intersections and make it safer for street-crossing pedestrians who only have to cope with slower moving traffic coming from one direction.
