Straight ahead (2nd exit)
When entering a roundabout if you are going straight ahead always proceed in the left hand
(unless road markings or signs tell you otherwise).
Again start the hazard routine, 6/8 car lengths away from the roundabout.
● Mirrors (check all 3).
● Signal (no need to signal at this point however your brake lights will be your signal to start
● Position to the centre of your lane so you don’t clip the kerb as you turn, L.A.D.A for early observations.
● Speed (OPEN JUNCTION IS A WALKING PACE, CLOSED IS A CRAWLING PACE).
● Gear on the approach (2nd if clear and open or 1st if closed and you have to stop).
Use L.A.D.A on the approach to see if it’s an open or a closed junction also anticipate parked cars and pedestrians (Use the technique of putting your wing mirror on the white line).
Look ahead and to the right to see if it’s clear, if not you will have to stop behind the white line.
To enter safely the vehicle has to be 4/6 car lengths away from you on the right..
Once you are on the roundabout and once you get to 9 o’clock, check your Mirrors but there is no need to Signal left to leave as it’s too small.
