Ministry of Transportation Ontario – Roundabouts FAQ
A roundabout is an alternative form of intersection traffic control. A modern roundabout is a circular intersection with yield at entry. It promotes safe and efficient traffic flow. They were introduced in the U.K., but are gaining more widespread use in North America, with implementation in many U.S. states and several Canadian provinces. Typical characteristics of a modern roundabout include:
• Yield at Entry
• One-Way Travel around the central island (counterclockwise)
• Slower Speeds
Roundabouts have the potential to reduce collisions, traffic delays and fuel consumption resulting in improved air quality through reduced vehicle emissions.
