Multi-lane roundabouts can be an effective intersection control and reduce injury crashes if the design and layout is carefully considered. Past experience has indicated that failure to yield and improper lane use violations can be over represented at multi-lane roundabouts, leading to a higher number of property damage crashes. Two LRRB funded studies have recently been conducted to attempt to address these violations. This document is a summary of findings from these studies and local agency experience to date.
