Traffic Advisory

LISA LANE (Solon City Limits)

The roundabout at Darrow Road and Glenwood Drive is now open.
Thank you for your patience.

Lesson One – Driving a Roundabout
Slow down. Obey traffic signs and pavement markings.
Yield to pedestrians and bicyclists.
Yield to traffic in all lanes on your left already in the roundabout.
Enter the roundabout when there is a safe gap in traffic.
Keep your speed low within the roundabout.
As you approach your exit, turn on your right turn signal.
Yield to pedestrians and bicyclists as you exit.

Lesson Two – Yield to Emergency Vehicles
Always yield to emergency vehicles.
If you have not entered the roundabout, pull over and allow emergency vehicles to pass.
If you have entered the roundabout, safely get out at the nearest exit, then pull over and allow emergency vehicles to pass.
Avoid stopping in the roundabout.

Lesson Three – Two or More Lane Roundabouts
Choose the proper lane before entering: As you get closer to the roundabout entrance, it is very important to observe the signs and arrows to determine which lane to use before entering a roundabout.
Black and white signs on the side of the road and white arrows on the road will show the correct lane to use.
In general, if you want to make a left turn, you should be in the left lane.
If you want to make a right turn, you should be in the right lane.
In the Twinsburg SR91 roundabouts, if you want to go straight you should be in the left lane.

As a rule of thumb, when entering or driving a roundabout,
always yield to traffic on your left.
