I live in a right-drive country and plan to motor in left-driving Jamaica this month. That being said we do not have roundabouts in my state so I am trying to learn the rules-of-engagement as it pertains to left-drive roundabouts.
- Traffic on the left has priority and flow is CCW (counter clockwise)
- The outer lane should be used only when departing the roundabout at the next exit (red path in diagram) or when traversing straight through (180 degrees) the roundabout (blue path in diagram)
- The inner lane should be used when traversing more than 180: in the case of the green path 270 degrees
Can I expect this to be true in left-drive Jamaica except that the flow is clockwise and the traffic approaching you from the right has priority?
If you have significant driving experience in left-drive roundabouts, please state this in your response.
