Traffic circle not a stop sign

Duncan – Regarding letter “Traffic circles tangled in misconceptions” Oct. 22/14 by Doug Parker.

A traffic circle with yield signs is not a four-way stop or a courtesy corner. To the best of my knowledge all the traffic circles in the Valley have yield signs. A yield sign is a yield sign is a yield sign. A vehicle entering a traffic circle must yield to the vehicles in the traffic circle. Please consult the “Road Sense for Drivers Guide” page 44 issued by ICBC for correct information regarding all this. It is pretty straightforward and simple.

Please drive safely and remember no one has the “right-of-way” if it is going to cause a crash.
