Rules of the Road #4528—Traffic Circles
I realize traffic circles (a.k.a. roundabouts) aren’t nearly as common in the States as they are in other countries, e.g. England, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from knowing the single fundamental rule of them:
Once you’ve entered the roundabout, YOU DO NOT STOP!
The whole point of a roundabout—regardless whether it’s a good-sized circle or just a little horse-spit of an annoyance—is that the traffic currently in the circle has the right of way. I’ll thank you to not risk me rear-ending you because you think you have to let in the car that’s waiting for you to pass!
