Can someone print the correct procedure to drive through the roundabout on 19th Street? I was told that you do it like a four-way stop sign and only one person in the roundabout at a time. But when I do this, the car behind me usually honks while I stop and wait.

A roundabout does not operate like a four-way stop. If you are about to enter a roundabout, you only need to yield to vehicles already in the roundabout to your left, City Manager Mike Wildgen said.

If the roundabout happens to be empty, vehicles from all approaches can enter at the same time. This is one of the reasons a roundabout can handle more traffic in the same amount of time than a four-way stop or traffic signal.
