MTO resources available on 'Driving Through Roundabouts'

from OMCA

Roundabouts are becoming more popular across Ontario and drivers can expect to encounter them more in the future. The idea behind them is to allow traffic to keep moving where two or more roads intersect, instead of having stop signs or signal lights. Large commercial vehicles may need to use more than one lane when entering and exiting the roundabout. Within the roundabout, large vehicles may also need to use more than one lane and/or the "apron" (an area between the circular roadway and the centre island) over which the rear wheels of these vehicles can safely track.

To educate new drivers on how to drive through roundabouts, MTO has included information in the Official Driver's Handbook. "Driving Through Roundabouts" can be found at: http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/dandv/driver/handbook/section2.6.7.shtml and "Dealing with Particular Situations at a Roundabout" can be found at http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/dandv/driver/handbook/section2.6.8.shtml.

MTO has also developed pamphlets and training material on roundabouts which is available on the ministry's website at: www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/engineering/roundabout. more
