How do roundabouts work in Barbados?

Visiting Barbados? Remember to drive on the left. Always give way (yield) to oncoming traffic before joining a roundabout.

We have many roundabouts in Barbados and you should familiarise yourself with how you need to approach and use them. A few illustrations are provided below. Please carefully note the lane you should merge into when you take an exit, as this is often a source of confusion for visitors to Barbados.

Roundabouts without directional arrows

If a roundabout does not have directional arrows, local drivers will expect you to use the left lane to turn left only, as shown in the illustration below:
