With more roundabouts coming to town, FMPD shares video tutorial

Flower Mound residents will see more roundabouts in their streets in the future, and the local police department created a video tutorial for those unsure of the rules of the unique style of intersection.

Flower Mound currently has seven roundabouts — uncommon but efficient circular intersections that require drivers to yield to vehicles to their left — and will be getting more in the near future, said town spokeswoman Molly Fox.

Roundabouts are being planned for the intersection of Waketon Road and Chinn Chapel Roads and on a future road, Jacob Lugo, halfway between College Parkway and Waketon Road. The town also plans to convert the existing multi-lane roundabout at Lakeside Village Boulevard and Lakeside Parkway to a single lane roundabout.

This week, the Flower Mound Police Department shared a tutorial video on social media, seen below:
