Modern roundabouts are becoming common around the United States and are a key component of the Lake County highway system. Roundabouts provide safer and more efficient traffic flow than standard intersections in many locations. Navigating a roundabout is easy – and since traffic moves in only one direction, there are less severe crashes and traffic flows smoothly.
When driving through roundabouts, drivers should remember four simple things:
- Slow down.
- Yield to traffic coming from the left and pedestrians.
- No passing.
- Choose the appropriate lane.
