I've pulled this quote from a different thread that I just didn't want to wade in to ... When I read that, I suddenly felt ill because I knew that I've been taking roundabouts at 25 that I would have taken at 45 in the car. So what tips do folks have on taking roundabouts at a pace that is more in keeping with the flow of the traffic? Right now (2 1/2 weeks on the road) I find roundabouts very intimidating, especially if I am turning right, and doubly so if I've had to stop at the round about and then I enter it with the intention to turn (either left or right doesn't seem to matter, I still wind up taking it in first gear). Help, anyone?
