  • MAINTAINING A DOMINANT LANE POSITION

    The OSMPSL routine is key for your preparation in turning right at a roundabout. You must be aware of the road markings and road signs, if there aren’t any, use the right hand lane. 

    Be aware of your surroundings first and then Indicate right and move into the middle of the right hand lane when safe to do so. You should maintain a dominating position in your lane to prevent other vehicles from trying to squeeze past. 

    Approach the roundabout at an appropriate speed and ensure you select the correct gear for the speed you are travelling. Look early into the roundabout, assess the traffic flow and make a decision to ride on or stop safely behind the line.

    MAINTAINING A DOMINANT LANE POSITION
  • GOOD DECISIONS ARE CRITICAL

    Once you make the decision to go, proceed ahead by moving into the centre of the right hand lane. This is also referred to as the inner lane. It may be necessary to take a lifesaver to the left on entering the roundabout as a safety check because other traffic may be in the left hand lane. Do not rush and cut across towards the left lane as this may be dangerous.

    Once in position in the right hand lane, continue to look in the intended direction of travel and once you reach the point of no return, change the signal from right to left and carry out a left lifesaver over the left shoulder to exit the roundabout safely.

    Once in the new lane, cancel signal. This can be a challenging roundabout for you to negotiate, a good understanding first and then practice under tuition is necessary for your safety.
