In a two-lane roundabout, drivers may be expected to use the outer lane for a ¼ circle and the inner lane in all other circumstances. Using the inner lane requires:
Crossing the outer lane to the inner lane when entering the roundabout. This is relatively easy, as I can usually safely stop and wait until there is room to enter the roundabout.
Transferring from inner lane to the outer lane prior to my exit.
On a straight road, it is straightforward to view in my rear mirror what lane other traffic is in, but on a roundabout, I get confused. Are there some tricks to determine the lane of traffic behind me on the two-lane roundabout?
If there is traffic in the outer lane, I am stuck and I cannot exit. I can also not stop safely. Should I keep driving in circles in the inner lane until there is space to exit to the outer lane?
There were no two-lane roundabouts in the area where I obtained my driver's license, so I did not have the opportunity to practice under professional supervision.
