# Circular motion: variants of passage of crossroads

For many drivers, there are road situations in which they feel insecure. One of such problematic issues is the circular movement. The rules provide for several situations of its occurrence, in which the driver's actions will differ significantly.

I think that it is not necessary to consider a circular motion in the presence of a traffic light, tk. The driver's actions are obvious, and such situations do not cause any special difficulties. Therefore, we pay special attention to cases of intersection of equivalent and unequal intersections, with or without priority signs, the constructive solution of which does not provide for the presence of signaling devices.

Equivalent intersection

The intersection of roads without the established priority signs, as well as the absence of a significant difference in their surfaces is called an equivalent intersection. The order of his travel is regulated by the rules of the road . Circular motion without priority signs also fits this definition. When crossing this intersection, you must give way to all vehicles moving on the right side, as well as the tram, regardless of the direction of its movement. But in any case, it is worthwhile to closely monitor the traffic situation, because until now there are drivers who are confused in the parties or simply do not know the rules of driving on the roads.

Unequal intersection

The intersection of roads preceded by priority signs is called an unequal intersection. This type also includes departures from adjacent areas, yards and parking lots. In addition, the intersection of roads with a different quality of coverage is also considered an unequal crossroads.

In the case of a circular motion, it is necessary to consider two scenarios:

1. roads where priority is given to the circular ring;

2. roads where priority is given to incoming flows.

Let's take a closer look at each of them. In the case when the circular motion is the priority, the driver, when entering such a crossroads, is obliged to give way to all those who are moving in a circle. Only after the way is free, he has the right to go on the road with a circular motion and already then has the advantage over other participants.

If the supremacy is given to the roads that enter the roundabout, the driver, when entering it, is not obliged to yield to the other road users except for trams and special purpose vehicles with flashing beacons.

Knowing all these rules and principles of reaction to emerging circumstances, any driver can avoid accidents and collisions on the road, where circular motion is provided. This will protect not only him, but also other road users, including both drivers and pedestrians. In addition, such knowledge will reduce nervous excitement and stress when crossing appropriate intersections. In this case, the expression "knowledge is power" is very relevant and effective.
