    The only thing I'd add to the above is that when you left indicate to exit the roundabout, you should do so AT not approaching the exit before the one you are going to take.

    Can you tell that my pet hate is ppl who drive silly on roundabouts? Lol I'm totally anal about it because we have a couple of shockers here that I have to go through several times a day on the work/school run


    theres a small space after the last exit before the one you wish to use, indicate THEN lol after the last exit slightly before the one you're about to use!

    its really not hard.. roundabouts are my pet hate too!

    If you are going straight through no indication on entry is required but you must indicate on exit. eg left indicator on to leave your exit.
    Thats what I was trying to say, but I guess you worded it better

    And yes I agree about the "give way to right". However this is not very desirable in peak traffic lol. Plus if YOU give way to YOUR right, they will give way to THEIR right, they will give way to THEIR right and they will give way to THEIR right. Noone will end up going anywhere. IYKWIM

    Exactly why I hate roundabouts! Lol They are always either too big so you catch up to other cars and almost have a crash trying to exit, too small so even when you give way you still have to be Speedy Gonzales to avoid a crash or half double and half single lanes which confuses everyone and results in crashes!

    I vote we start a petition to vitto roundabouts and replace them with traffic lights

    Yes! Im all for traffic lights! It might take you a minute longer to get to work, but you're pretty much guaranteed to get to work in 1 piece that way

    I know the town planning guy Responsible for the first Roundabouts in Sydney... Wanna Lynch mob him?

    Also Those who say you have to Indicate right when going straight in a round about....

    Not according to the RTA and I believe this was was published in a booklet of National rood rules in November 1999

    Yeah you only indicate to the right if you turn to the right. Than before you exit you indicate to the left so that the traffic ahead of you entering the roundabout, know where you're heading.

    Just confirmed the above details.. QLD Indicate leaving only for Straight. http://hereforlife.qld.gov.au/Campaigns-Road-rules/Roundabouts

    WA http://www.ors.wa.gov.au/Documents/R...undabouts.aspx Indicate only on exit (Homestar you might want to point this out to whoever told you it was different)

    SA is also the same http://www.transport.sa.gov.au/pdfs/registration/driver_handbook_11_03_pgs73_91_.pdf

    VIC too http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/SafetyAndRules/RoadRules/Roundabouts.htm

    Tas shows the same on page 37 http://www.transport.tas.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0010/49096/road_rules_booklet.pdf

    NT Also Agrees http://www.drivingnt.com/tips/roundabouts.html#3

    Even in Canberra the city of roundabouts they agree.. http://www.tams.act.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/14013/roundaboutrulesadvertisement.pdf

    This concludes today's tutorial and I will assume that I shall never see a Hubber Indicate RIGHT when entering a round about to go Straight.

    Soooooo to get back to topic.....

    Today I found myself being overtaken by this old Suzuki Swift while doing 110km/h on the highway and the Suzuki Swift was being driven by a red P-plater with a small child in the back.
    She then continued sticking in the right lane with no traffic to overtake, for another 5-6km. She then decided to save 0.1 liter of petrol by slip********* a B double.
    Insanity? Or just playing Russian roulette with your child's life, your own life, and the truckies life too?
