Module 3: 03 Right of way (intersections)

1 min read

You must yield and yield to those cars at or near the intersection on your right. Still, watch out for cars on your left. They may be giving in to you, but you should always check.

Even if you don’t have a stop sign, if you are on a dirt road and you need to turn onto a paved road, you will have to yield to traffic on the paved road. Asphalt road dirt road. Be very careful and check to see if they have a stop sign next to you, which is unlikely if your path is not paved. When the coast is clear, you are free to make your move. There really are no exceptions to this rule; you should always yield right-of-way if you are on a dirt road and you are turning onto a paved road. As a driver, use your best judgment.

The “right of way” is essentially the right to follow. That is, whoever has the right of way has priority to go first or maintain their lane position. While driving, the right-of-way usually appears at intersections, but once you know the rules, you can use them anywhere, such as in the school hallway. If someone jumps in front of you, just yell, “Hey, I had the right of way!”
