Left radical is 'vehicle' (車). The right radical is a character found only in Chinese meaning 'arrange/align neatly'. It is derived from a pictograph of a bundle of bamboo capped 'neatly'. Here it acts phonetically to express 'roll'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Vehicle has aligned and capped wheels.'
