Traffic Circle Safety 2017

The City of Las Cruces reminds motorists of the proper way to use traffic circles/roundabouts to help reduce risk of accidents.

1. Slow down.

2. Look and plan ahead.

3. Choose a lane prior to entering the roundabout and get in your lane if needed if travelling northbound on Church Street and southbound on Main Street.

4. Pedestrians go first. When entering or exiting a roundabout, yield to pedestrians at the crosswalk.

5. Look to the left, yield to all traffic in the roundabout, find a safe gap, and then go.

6. Don't pass vehicles in a roundabout.

7. Signal.
