But, loving my rental in Amelia and ready to buy once my pending sale gets final!
We drank the Kool-Aid in 2008 and we are so happy! We found everyone to be helpful and nice. Welcome and enjoy

It's easier to manage roundabouts if you plan your route in advance so that you KNOW at which roundabout you need to enter the circle in the left lane. Those of us who have lived here for a time automatically know this but newcomers are often unaware until they are in the rotary and it dawns on them they need to turn left.

No cross in my yard, don't have a dog, always color in between the lines.

Only if you’re going to second or third exit and should stay in left lane exiting. If you are turning right after the second exit you don’t cross in the right lane till after the second exit and if you do better be watching for the car coming all way around the round about to third exit or the car that don’t yield to traffic in the roundabout.

There is no straight road in roundabout you are going to turn right at some point and when you do use you’re blinker light so others entering the roundabout know which way you’re going.

Just remember entering roundabout you only have to yield. And at stop signs you actually have to stop or should I say should stop

We are new too and welcome... we are a retirement community and majority of us are newbies as the baby boomers are coming and fast! Just take your time and be safe. Read up about roundabouts. We avoid them during busy times but our location allows this. No worries... be happy and enjoy being a villager. It’s up to US to keep it Americans friendliest ! 👍🌴🚗🙏

Phewwww! After reading directions on roundabouts, it's clear as mud, yipsters, and I've lived here for awhile. I would only add, pray a lot. Btw, welcome to the villages. You will be a wonderful addition.

Going into every circle there's a sign that tells you which lanes to use. Most circles use the right lane for right turns and going straight the left lane for going straight and left turns. Some however only allow a left turn from the left lane and straight and right from the right lane. Take a look at Camino Real And Morris Boulevard.

That is not true.

If there is another near you in the roundabout IN EITHER LANE, you have to stop until that car is past you.
