Confused about indicating on Roundabouts?

Tony Commisso - Wednesday, August 09, 2017

Turns that occur at roundabouts can be described by imagining the roundabout to be a clock face. 

• Any turn that exits the roundabout before 12 o'clock can be considered a left turn. -
Use your left indicator as you approach and enter the roundabout. 
- Remain in the left lane as you complete your turn. 
- Continue to use your left indicator as you exit the roundabout.
- Stop indicating once you have exited the roundabout.

• Any turn that exits the roundabout after 12 o'clock can be considered a right turn. 
- Use your right indicator as you approach and enter the roundabout. 
- Before exiting, use your left indicator and follow the exit lane marking. 
- Stop indicating once you have exited the roundabout.

• Straight ahead at a roundabout is taken to be at half-way around or at 12 o'clock. 
- There is no need to use your indicator until you are ready to exit the roundabout. 
- Before exiting, use your left indicator and follow the exit lane marking. 
- Stop indicating once you have exited the roundabout.
