How to Use a Roundabout - As A Pedestrian

Be safe - stop, look and listen.

  1. Always use the crosswalk and sidewalk around the perimeter of the roundabout. NEVER cross to the central island.
  2. Only cross when it is safe. Before entering the crosswalk make sure that drivers see you and stop for you, or wait for an adequate gap in traffic. When crossing an entry or exit with more than one lane, be sure that vehicles in both lanes are stopping for you.
  3. Look towards the roundabout when crossing the exit lanes. Look towards the approaching traffic when crossing the entry lanes.
  4. Use the pedestrian refuge in the splitter island. It allows you to cross one direction of traffic at a time.
