Vehicles entering the traffic circle must yield to vehicles already in the circle. If exiting in the first exit use the outer lane. If exiting the second lane use either the inner or outer lane. If taking the third exit or beyond, use the inner lane. The inner lane can exit directly from the circle; however, you must use your turn signal and ensure you are safe to merge to the right. When exiting the circle, always use your turn signal. Never pass or ride side-by-side in the circle. When the intersection backs up, use of the zipper technique is required. The zipper technique is a process where individual lanes take turns merging into one lane.
