- Never walk through a roundabout or cross through the center island (motorists expect you will use the crosswalks and will look for you there).
- As pedestrians approach the crosswalk, look LEFT to make sure cars stop for you.
- Cross to the next pedestrian island, and look RIGHT to make sure cars stop for you. Finish crossing to the opposite crosswalk.
- Cyclists should walk their bicycles across the pedestrian crosswalk.
- If riding in the roundabout, navigate it like motorists.
- Do not hug the curb. Ride in the middle of the lane to prevent vehicles from passing you.
- Stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. Signal when making turns out of the roundabout. For more information on safe cycling, visit www. bike.emory.edu.
- When approaching the roundabout, slow down to the posted speed. Stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk; they have the right-of-way.
- As drivers enter the roundabout, yield to approaching vehicles. Wait for a gap in traffic, and merge RIGHT into the roundabout.
- When in the roundabout, continue until you reach your street. Never stop for other cars while in the roundabout.
- To exit the roundabout, signal, then bear right to exit the roundabout. Stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk while exiting.
