Time For A Roundabout Rules Refresher

Ok…So…I figured by now everybody has had a chance to get used to the new roundabouts that we use on a regular basis.  For me, the 2 on Sprinkle Rd and I94 are my most traveled.  Then there’s the one at Miham and 12th in Portage.  Maybe it’s just me but I think people should’ve figured them out by now.  But in case you or someone you know hasn’t, here are some basis common sense rules to follow…

1. A YIELD SIGN IS NOT A STOP SIGN.  The whole idea of the roundabout is to keep traffic flowing.  I don’t know how many times I’ve shouted in my car, “IT’S NOT A STOP SIGN.  IT’S NOT A STOP SIGN.  IT’S NOT A STOP SIGN.”

2. YOU CAN CUT IN ON ANOTHER VEHICLE.  It’s not a suggestion.  It’s encouraged.  I’m not saying cut them off causing them to stop.  It’s all about flow.  You don’t have to wait until the coast is clear.  Just get in there and keep going.

3. IF A VEHICLE IS TO YOUR LEFT AND THEY GO, YOU’RE OK TO GO TOO.  The fact that they are going tells you the opportunity is there.  They are, in fact, shielding you from any on coming vehicles.  You don’t have to wait until they go to see if it’s ok for you to go.

4. GET IN THE CORRECT LANE.  A roundabout is not designed for changing lanes.  If you find yourself in the wrong lane, get out and get back in.
