Letter To the Editor – Roundabout Appreciation

Very glad to see great information about how to use a Roundabout in the April Deer Park Gazette. I would, however, like to add one detail that I think is very important…The use of ones “Right Turn Blinker” to indicate that one is exiting the Roundabout.  It takes some practice but it is very helpful. It is required in Europe, where Roundabouts are very common, and works quite well. It seems many drivers forget that they have turn indicators in their vehicles. Thanks again for your article.
