How To Navigate a Roundabout

Post Date:04/24/2019 7:04 AM

The City will soon be adding another roundabout on S. Santa Fe Avenue in Phase II of the PSF Phase Improvement project and a private developer is constructing a roundabout on Mar Vista Drive. Many drivers have not navigated a roundabout before and may have concerns on how to drive around and maneuver through one. The City of Vista's roundabouts are constructed large enough for a fire truck to navigate through.

Following are tips on how to navigate a roundabout

  • Slow down as you near the roundabout.
  • Look left and yield to vehicles that are approaching within the roundabout.
  • Now you’re moving … once you are in the roundabout, you have the right of way.
  • Turn right to exit the roundabout when you reach your destination street.
  • Share the road; yield for pedestrians and cyclists as you enter and exit the roundabout.

For more information on city roundabouts, the public is asked to contact Traffic Engineering at 760.639.6111.
