Roundabouts, Around About Issaquah

I love roundabouts.  I think they are good public policy.  I especially like the ones around here in Eugene-Springfield, Oregon.

 

Here is a lot of fun.  Here is a little insight.  Here is a Dan's great blog post on Roundabouts.

The first video is funny.

The second is great instruction.  You WILL learn how to get round about a roundabout.

 

 

 

 

 

Roundabouts, Around About Issaquah

The new Roundabout is open in Issaquah at the intersection of East Lake Sammamish Parkway and SE 43rd Street.  It's a bit different from the single lane Roundabouts in nearby Sammamish.  This is the second roundabout in Issaquah; the other is on West Lake Sammamish Parkway, near I-90. 

These are two lane roundabouts.  The two lane version requires you to know which lane to be in before you enter.  Once you understand how a Roundabout works, they are not difficult to maneuver.  There is no reason to get stuck like Clark Griswold in European Vacation.

The basic rules of a roundabout are

•1.       Slow Down when approaching and be prepared to stop before entering

•2.       Traffic in the circle has the right of way

•3.       Yield to your left when entering

•4.       Wait for an opening before entering

•5.       Once in the circle, do not "let people in" the traffic behind you is not prepared to stop

•6.       If you miss your turn, just go around again.

The City of Issaquah posted this video, produced by the State of Washington and The City of Lacey with more details of how to safely maneuver this two lane roundabout.
