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:
Flower Mound has seven roundabouts, with more planned for the future. Roundabouts have numerous benefits in terms of safety and mobility, but this can only be achieved if motorists are navigating them correctly. Check out these quick tips from Flower Mound Police Sgt. Jason Rachal, on how to safely enter, maneuver, and exit a roundabout.
