    roundabout

    Hi,

    Which preposition should I use?

    ''Turn right at/on/from the roundabout.''

    I think ''at''.

    Re: roundabout

    That works if there are only two or three exits from the roundabout (AE rotary/traffic circle). You may have to be more specific: 'At the roundabout take the first/second/third/fourth exit'.

    That's what I used to say in the days when I was a driving instructor.
