In a traffic circle, the vehicle on the right must yield to the vehicle on
the left. The driver on the left must activate the right signal and use
caution when leaving the circle and crossing through the outside lane.

Traffic indicated by white arrows to yield
to traffic indicated by black arrows.

In this diagram:
• Vehicles B and C must yield to vehicle A
• Vehicle E must yield to vehicle D,
while vehicles F and D proceed
• Vehicle H must yield to vehicle G

Traffic that is in the lanes shown in red must yield to traffic in the lanes
shown in yellow. Traffic entering the circle must yield to traffic already in
the circle. When you are leaving the traffic circle, use your right turn signal.
This tells other drivers what you intend to do.



Remember these safety tips:
• Enter into the right-hand lane of a traffic circle when you intend to leave
at the first available exit point.
• If you are planning to proceed to the second exit or beyond, it is
recommended that you use the left-hand lane.
• When entering or leaving a traffic circle be aware there may be marked
pedestrian crosswalks.
