Roundabouts are designed to yield to traffic in the roundabout and only stop when traffic in roundabout which you are about to enter. People will not stop at or before stops signs, especially 4 way stops or stop half way out in the intersection, but stop before entering roundabout when No traffic in roundabout which clearly the only have to yield.
I hear ya, I mean when others are progressing properly through the Roundabout, don't sweat them by creeping into their rightful lane. Sorry about that, I meant well but many time don't express myself well. Thanks for pointing it out.

A traffic circle is a traffic light replacement.

Nothing more. Think of it as driving down 466 or 466a and turing onto Morse or Buena Vista.

If you want to turn right get in the right lane.
If you want to turn left get in the left lane.
If you want to go straight either lane works.

Why is this hard to understand? You have all used traffic lights for years. It works exactly the same.
