STAY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LANE

Most roundabouts have four individual junctions, sometimes referred to as a four spoke roundabout.

You should use the OSMPSL routine when you approach the roundabout to turn left.

You must use the correct position, approach at the correct speed and use the right gear.

ACCESS THE SITUATION

As you arrive at the mouth of the roundabout look into the roundabout to assess the traffic flow.

Turning left at roundabouts is similar in approach to turning left at junctions, but use a central position in the lane you choose to stop vehicles squeezing past.

YOUR ROAD POSITION IS IMPORTANT

Reduce speed and gears on approach and when close enough finish on the rear brake only before reaching the roundabout. 

Look to the right on approach to assess if it is clear to continue.

ALWAYS PREPARE TO STOP

Stop if necessary behind the white line in the centre of the lane and in first gear. 

When the roundabout is clear, move off and stay in the centre of your lane in the roundabout.

Once you move into the new lane, cancel the signal and accelerate away from the roundabout.
