Getting around Chilliwack roundabouts made simple next Thursday

You might be interested in the Roundabout Open House on Sept. 18 at the Sardis Library

Roundabouts are here to stay in Chilliwack.

Judging from the crashes reported, a little education could go a long way.

So if you’re not sure about how to use them, you might be interested in the Roundabout Open House on Sept. 18 at the Sardis Library on Tyson Road.

You can learn about the roundabout rules, pedestrian safety and the differences between multi-lane and single-lane roundabouts.

The open house Thursday, Sept. 18 runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

City engineering staff will be on hand to answer questions about the navigation, design and function of the traffic-calming roundabouts, along with ICBC and RCMP reps.

There are three aspects to keep in mind:

• Know which exit you’re heading for;

• Yield to oncoming traffic; and

• Always signal your intention to exit.
