Roundabouts in PEI
Roundabouts are constructed at key intersections throughout Prince Edward Island to maximize safety and traffic flow. Roundabouts reduce the need for traffic signals and help ensure traffic moves efficiently during both peak and off-peak traffic periods.
How do I get through a roundabout?
As you approach the roundabout, slow down and yield to traffic already circulating. When there is a gap on your left, enter the roundabout turning right. Do not stop once you are inside the roundabout. Follow the circle until you reach your exit.
