If you're "taking a left" (which is actually going around 3/4, since the actual exit will always be on your right, and the middle of the circle will always be on your left), and you followed the rules and entered the circle in the left lane, then by the time you get to that "left" where you exit, the exit will now be to your right, and you will have to take a right from the left lane.

Those are the rules though. If you're going 3/4 of the way around the circle, you have to enter the circle in the left lane. And you're not allowed to change lanes. So you exit the circle to your right when you get to the exit, from the left lane.

And wait for the police to cite you...no right turns from the left lane. Also, if you are making a left turn from the left lane use your signal.....no different than any intersection.

You are absolutely correct...on BOTH points.


Turning right...from left lane.

Roundabouts are the reason I stay in my golf cart. Enjoy!

"You should never use your left signal in a roundabout."

I nearly always use my left turn signal, once I'm in the rotary, to confirm to nearby drivers that I'm continuing around. Then when I've passed the last rotary to my right that I'm not taking, I use the right signal to indicate I'm exiting. Signal or not, however, caution and awareness of nearby cars is necessary. I don't recall reading that using the left signal is a no-no.

Roundabouts......here we go again.

Oh wait, no need to repost all those opinions. Here are two threads from last month with 240 posts. Just copy and paste.

There are no left turns in a roundabout, only right turns. If you turn left in a roundabout, you're in the landscaping. If you're driving down a road and the road bends to the left you don't put on your left turn signal. Same thing applies.

We drank the Kool-Aid in 2008 and we are so happy! We found everyone to be helpful and nice. Welcome and enjoy
