click to see larger image A circular traffic intersection, where people stop and give way to traffic already on the roundabout, these vehicles go round in a clockwise direction until they reach the exit they require. This may sound like the rules of cricket, and some overseas riders do find these confusing at first, but you'll soon get used to them.

We love 'em - great for riding round if traffic is light, but watch out for diesel spills. I've been a victim of spilled diesel fuel before (twice actually), and so have many other riders.
