How to drive in a traffic circle [video]

How to drive in a traffic circleTraffic circles can be tricky to navigate, but here’s a handy video that lays out the rules clearly.

Traffic circles, or roundabouts, can lead to a lot of road rage with confused drivers approaching it differently.

Says Arrive Alive, “The advantages of a roundabout or traffic circle are:

  • Traffic calming
  • Reduction of angle and head-on crashes
  • Reduction of crash severity
  • Improvement of intersection capacity
  • Aesthetic improvements”

We love Discovery’s easy to follow tutorial on staying safe when taking the circle - and remember to be wary of trucks! They can take up two lanes when turning.

To learn even more about keeping safe on the road and get some insider advice, you can get this full guide on driving safely on South African roads - get the guide!
