For mini-roundabouts, the roundabout elements such as approach lane, entrance, central island, circulating lane, splitter islands, and guidance signs are designed and placed in such a way to enable 97 percent of vehicles such as cars, vans, SUVs, and small trucks to pass through by staying in the circulatory roadway.
In the equations, [T.sub.0dom] is follow-up time between vehicles in the dominant minor approach lane, [T.sub.osub] is follow-up time between vehicles in the sub-dominant minor approach lane; [Q.sub.dom] is traffic flow in the dominant minor approach lane; [Q.sub.sub] is traffic flow in the sub-dominant minor approach lane, [Q.sub.0i] is the follow-up time of [i.sub.th] approach lane; [T.sub.i] is the critical gap acceptance value of drivers entering from ith approach lane.

In order to analyze the impact of the dynamic lane assignment on traffic operation, the approach lanes were divided into four groups, as illustrated in Figure 3: Group 1, the variable approach lane; group 2, the lane adjacent to the variable lane with the same lane-use; group 3, the lane adjacent to the variable lane with different lane-use of the variable lane; and group 4, the lanes with the same lane-use as the variable lane at other approaches of the intersection.
Drivers should give themselves plenty of stopping distance from the vehicles ahead of them, and watch for signs and flaggers as they approach lane detours, Bonham said.
