Rules of a Roundabout

Slow down when approaching a roundabout. For multi-lane roundabouts, as with any intersection, get into the appropriate lane.
Yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. It is the law.
Yield to vehicles already in the roundabout. Merge into the traffic flow when it is safe.
Continue through the roundabout until you reach your exit. Do not stop or pass in a roundabout.
Exit the roundabout immediately if an emergency vehicle approaches, and then pull over. Do not stop in the roundabout.
Yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk when exiting the roundabout.
Give large trucks extra space in a roundabout. Large trucks may straddle both lanes while driving through a multi-lane roundabout.
