PS: Do not touch the phone with your hands. For non-Full Licence friends, Bluetooth and cradle are not acceptable.

Roundabout specification

You don’t need to enter the turntable and just hit which direction you want to go. There are many situations:

1. Enter the turntable and go straight-turn left before exiting the turntable

2. Enter the turntable and turn right-turn on the right light first, turn left before exiting the turntable

3. Enter the turntable and turn left-keep turning left light

Tips: A careful friend will definitely find that as long as you turn on the left light before leaving the turntable, it will be OK

The above are all regulations and penalties in the School Zone. Although driving is cool, you must pay attention to driving safety and be responsible for yourself and others! Finally, I wish everyone can stay away from the ticket ~ standard driving
