Roundabout Bills to Help Trucks, Farm Machinery

Senate Bill 379 and Assembly Bill 451 will allow large vehicles within a multi-lane roundabout to deviate from the lane in which they are
traveling to safely navigate the roundabout. Deviations must be done with due regard for all other traffic. The bills would require smaller
vehicles to yield to larger farm machinery and trucks.

The bills define a large vehicle as a vehicle or a combination of vehicles with a total length of 40 feet or more or a total width of 10 feet or more. Vehicles that don’t meet those specifications must yield the right-of-way when approaching or driving through a roundabout, and, if necessary, shall reduce speed or stop in order to yield.

SB 379 was authored by State Senator Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green). AB 451 was authored by State Rep. Ed Brooks (R-Reedsburg).
