People are simply saying that if the majority of drivers in Hong Kong followed these guidelines for roundabouts then roundabouts would be even safer than they're now.
There are plenty of drivers here that approach a completely empty two-lane roundabout on the left lane and then do a complete circle in the outer lane.
These days I don't think about it, but we've lived with roundabouts for about 40 years, they aren't a new idea or concept here or in Europe ( especially France and Belgium ) where circle points as they are known over there are just part of everyday driving life.
Basically a round about is the same rules ( usually as there are exceptions when sign posted otherwise) as a cross intersection in regard to the left lane which usually allow you to turn left or go straight, not cut accross the right lane to turn right from the left lane !
Apart from that, HK is mostly o.k and easy enough to drive around once you get familiar with where it is you're going. Also it's a good idea if you are using GPS to set it to prompt you a good deal earlier before the turn off as the turn offs come up all of a sudden some times where they use double lines, so if you are in the wrong lane you cant cross over. Once you get used to driving in HK you'll tend to use the GPS less often.
