Roundabouts are here to stay on Chilliwack roads, but some motorists are still having issues with them.

A little education might go a long way to decreasing the crash statistics, and improving the flow of traffic.

The latest Roundabout Open House hosted by City of Chilliwack staff is set for Thursday, April 9 in the Slesse Room of Evergreen Hall on Corbould Street at 5:30 p.m.

Learn about the rules, pedestrian safety and the differences between multi-lane and single-lane roundabouts.

Engineering staff will be on hand to answer questions about the design and function of the local roundabouts, along with ICBC and RCMP reps. They’ve been found to be cheaper and more effective than any other traffic calming method.

There are rules with a multi-lane roundabout:

• Pick the lane based on the exit you need to take;

• Yield to oncoming traffic in the roundabout; and

• Always signal your intention to exit.

More details about the open house (5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.) at 604-793-2907 or at chilliwack.com
