St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - I don't know about you, but driver's education seems like a distant memory, which is why we need an occasional refresher course on who has the right of way, for example, in a roundabout.

"Anybody who's within the roundabout actually has the right of way and those who are just about to enter the roundabout have to yield to those cars that are already in the roundabout," said Sgt. Brent Feig, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

Dual lanes, especially on entrance and exit ramps, can be confusing, but the thing to remember is to stay within your lane.

"As you're turning, yes, and then as get onto the ramp there are the dashed lines, that's the time that you would want to merge on with other traffic," said Sgt. Feig.

Of course, that sometimes requires a little patience. A couple of other things to remember: pay attention to the signs, wear your seat belt, always use your turn signals and when passing, get through the other driver's blind spot as quickly as you can without breaking the speed limit.

And one more thing: texting while driving is for the birds.
