Florida is growing roundabouts faster than the average farmer can grow tomatoes.
At no time does the Florida government teach proper etiquette on driving through one and staying alive after finishes each circle!
Look around at the crosses on the side of the roads of some roundabout and/or check the news.
At no time have I seen a signal light showing other drivers your intent at going through any roundabout.
In Florida it is who has the biggest, or worst looking vehicle, which vehicle is the fastest and which driver has the most guts!
‘None of the Above’!
Rules on roundabouts
At the dashed yield line, look to your left and yield to drivers already in the roundabout.
Remember, in a multi-lane roundabout, you must yield to both lanes of traffic. Once a gap in traffic appears, merge into the roundabout and proceed to your exit.
Look for pedestrians and use your turn signal before you exit.
Want to see how roundabouts apply not only vehicles but also bicyclists and pedestrians?
The Florida Department of Transportation’s publishes Guides to Roundabouts.
Besides helping you avoid a crash, it could be a great way to impress your friends with random knowledge the next time you drive through a roundabout.
What is a roundabout?
A roundabout is a one-way, circular intersection that uses signs to guide motorists around them.
They do not have traffic signals. Roundabouts have safe crossings for pedestrians and bicyclists.
