Rules of the Roundabout!

Do you know the rules of the Roundabout?

Some of us drive them every day at places like Burnham Drive in Gig Harbor or in Silverdale and they are becoming far more prevalent here in Washington. You may have witnessed some pretty incredible driving maneuvers at roundabouts, or even been involved in an accident. Roundabouts are a pretty good area to observe road rage as well. Have you ever see someone just stop for no reason while they are inside the roundabout? Or how about stopping prior to entering even when there are no cars? WSDOT has a great page covering the basic rules for roundabouts, please familiarize yourself with them. We’ve represented several clients who have been injured because other drivers did not understand the rules of the roundabout. Be careful out there!
