Driving in a roundabout can be scary and intimidating. We want to hear how you successfully navigate this driving challenge. To participate in the #DrivingSkills101 PSA Challenge, submit a video telling us your idea for a PSA on how to drive in a roundabout and/or how roundabouts reduce crashes.

A roundabout, also known as a traffic circle, is a circular intersection with design features that promote a safe and efficient flow of traffic. The roundabout forces drivers to slow down, which helps eliminate severe types of intersection crashes such as head-on collisions, right-angle, and left-turn crashes. Roundabouts also create a safer environment for pedestrians, as they can walk on sidewalks around the perimeter and cross only one direction of traffic at a time. Crossing distances are relatively short, and driver speeds are lower than at traditional intersections.


Create a 2-minute or less video telling us your ideas for a PSA on driving in a roundabout. NOTE: Your video is NOT the actual PSA, just your ideas.
Upload your video to YouTube and complete the online application found here. Applications received without the video will be disqualified.
