I have to indicate right when I enter a roundabout unless I am turning left.
You must indicate right on entering the roundabout if you are turning right or performing a u-turn but NOT if you are travelling straight ahead.
Many motorists are unsure about who gives way and when to indicate. If this is you then read on …
Who gives way?
A vehicle approaching a roundabout must give way to all vehicles already on the roundabout.
What lane do I use?
Unless lane arrows indicate otherwise:
• To turn left, use the left lane.
• To turn right (or perform a u-turn), use the right lane.
• To go straight ahead, use either lane.
When do I need to indicate?
• To turn left (exit less than half way round) – indicate left as you enter the roundabout and continue to indicate left until you have exited.
• To turn right or perform a u-turn (exit more than half way round) – indicate right as you enter the roundabout and just prior to exiting, indicate left.
• To go straight ahead – there is no need to indicate until you are exiting the roundabout – indicate left just prior to exiting as you would with all other exits.
