There are a set of rules but people dont know how to drive on them. The first roundabouts appeared in Norway only in 1986 and many people, especially those who took their driving test before that dont know how.
Many people accelerate into roundabouts thinking that higher speeds give them right of way.
I rode into a roundabout with good momentum a few years ago and a lady accelerated to come into the roundabout first but she braked at the same time I stopped before the the roundabout. A sprinter behind her did not manage to stop and smashed into her.
She was badly hurt and both she and the driver of the Sprinter tried to shift the blame on me.
The police shelved the case and both of them got heavy fines.
