All About Roundabouts

Today’s Three Seconds: Roundabouts

3 Second Stop

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.
