Well, if the road that you are driving along enters a roundabout you will probably want to exit it onto another road at some point. The first road that you come to is the first exit, the second is the second exit and so on.
Taking the second exit (going straight)
On a four-way roundabout, the second exit will generally mean that you want to go straight. However, if there are more than four exits, the second exit would probably not be going straight.
The Number Of The Exit
If there are three exits on a roundabout and three lanes, each lane corresponds to an exit, with the first exist being the lane furthest to the left. The second exit is the middle lane, while the third is the lane on the right.
When taking the first exit (unless signs and markings indicate otherwise): Signal left and approach the exit in the left hand lane. Keep to the left on the roundabout and signal left to leave.
When wishing to take the second exit, you should take the left lane when approaching the roundabout, unless otherwise indicated by signage.
watch out for the signs letting you know you are getting near your exit. move into the left-hand lane well before reaching your exit. signal left in good time and reduce your speed on the slip road as necessary.
For all exits you must indicate left before you take the exit. Bear in mind that if you indicate left and don't take that exit that cars coming onto the roundabout just after that exit might think you are turning and could pull out in front of you.
On a standard, 2 lane, 4 exit roundabout. When turning right (3rd exit) you indicate right and stay in the outer lane (the one closest to the roundabout) until you pass the 2nd exit, when you start indicating left to leave.
Turning left, 2nd exit.
Make sure that you don't signal on approach to the roundabout, but only signal to exit. Signalling on approach to the roundabout would mislead other road users as they might think that you're going to come off to the 1st exit.
Following the road ahead (2nd exit)
You would have no signal on approach, however when you reach the centre point of the 1st exit, you would signal left, to let other traffic know that you are leaving at the next exit.
Driving around a three-lane roundabout is very similar to a two-lane: To exit on the first exit, go in the outside lane and use the indicator to leave the roundabout at that first exit.
There are four main types of exit strategies businesses use to sell or dispose of their assets: initial public offering (IPO), mergers and acquisitions (M&A), private equity investment and private investment in public equity (PIPE).
The exit rule states that you must give way when exiting certain places, such as parking lots. When exiting a parking lot, or other place where the exit rule applies, you must therefore give way to all road users, even those approaching from the left. The exit rule applies when exiting a: Hard shoulder.
If your exit is before or at 12 o'clock, choose the left-hand lane. If the exit is after 12 o'clock, choose the right hand lane. This gets a little trickier when a roundabout has more than two lanes. If there are numerous options, there will generally be road markings on the road to signal which lane you need to be in.
When entering the roundabout, yield to traffic in all lanes of the roundabout, as they have the right-of-way. Failing to yield to traffic in both lanes may cause a collision with a vehicle within the roundabout. Do not change lanes inside a roundabout, even when exiting.
The easiest way to remember which lane you need to be in on a roundabout, is to think of the roundabout. As a clock. We split the roundabout down the middle. If the exit you require is 12 o'clock or before you need the left hand lane.
When taking an intermediate exit… You do not normally need to signal. Approach in the most appropriate lane and stay there until you need to change course. Change lanes when you need to leave. Signal left after passing the exit before the one you need.
If you don't know which lane you need to take, road signs and lane markings leading to the junction should be able to give you the correct guidance. Unless you need the right lane at the next junction it is normally better to select the left lane. This will avoid you having to change lanes after you turn.
