I use the Auburn and Main roundabout daily, and apparently I've been doing it wrong this entire time and I bet you have too.

A roundabout is a traffic circle that you enter on the right, yield, and then exit where you need to go. But there's one little piece you are probably missing.

Did you know that when you are exiting the roundabout, you are supposed to use your right turn signal? As stated in this graphic below, using your right turn signal to exit the roundabout is required. Do you ever see anyone do that?
