The main purposes of a roundabout is to assist in the free flow of traffic with the minimum of controls and to reduce conflict points that occure at other types of junctions.

Providing everyone keeps to a fairly simple set of rules and drivers signal their intent at the appropriate time, traffic flow through the roundabout is safely increased.

Many people in Cyprus do not know how to negotiate a roundabout, so be aware that others will not follow the rules. There are other routes that are acceptable but our advice is to keep it simple.

In Cyprus the information sign at the approach to the roundabout will only be a very approximate representation of its layout.

Outlined are the basic rules in a series of diagrams.
