  • MOST ROUNDABOUTS HAVE FOUR EXITS

    You will be faced with a great variety of roundabouts when riding on the road. The most common roundabout will have four exits, sometimes referred to as a four spoke roundabout. Roundabouts are a traffic calming measure and allow a constant flow to ease congestion.

    Roundabouts can be very busy places, so you must use the OSMPSL routine when approaching. You must also ensure an appropriate speed to give yourself time, adopt the correct gear and make sure you get into the correct road position as soon as you can. You must also have time to look into the roundabout to assess traffic flow.

  • PROFESSIONAL TRAINING IS IMPERATIVE

    Turning left at a roundabout is very similar to turning left at a normal junction. The key difference is the need to maintain a central dominating position in your lane on approach. This prevents other vehicles from being able to squeeze past you, in the same lane.

    If the roundabout is clear on approach and it is safe, look forward and in the intended direction of travel and ride into the roundabout. Stay in the centre of the left hand lane and leave the roundabout at the first exit. 

    You are advised to maintain your vigilance and be aware of traffic around you. Take effective observations if necessary to maintain your safety. Once you are in the new lane, cancel the signal and continue your journey.
