How To Drive A Roundabout

How To Drive A Roundabout

Roundabouts are designed to make intersections safer and more efficient for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. There are two-types of roundabouts: single-lane and multi-lane. South Dakota plans to only install only single-lane roundabouts on state highways.

Some important things to remember when driving a roundabout:

  • Slow down before entering the roundabout
  • Yield to drivers in the roundabout
  • Drivers in the roundabout do NOT yield to entering traffic
  • Do not stop in the roundabout
  • Never pass in a roundabout
