Right of way, am I right? Do you know what to do when you’re rollin’ up… to the intersection? First things first:
First and foremost, you gotta stop, but do you know who should yield and who gets to go first? Let’s break it down.
The Right of Way Rules
Whoever stops at the intersection first has the right of way, them’s the breaks (pun intended). If you arrive after someone, you have to yield until it’s your turn to go. No matter if you’re turning left, turning right, or going straight, you should always be aware of who gets to the intersection first to know who gets to leave first.
If you get to an intersection at the same time as someone, the person on the left yields to the person on the right. So if you’re on the right, you get to go first. If not, then you should let the other person go.
When it comes to right of way, be a giver, not a taker.But don’t be shy about taking what’s yours. If you’re always giving everyone right of way all willy-nilly, you’re gonna cause intersection confusion. Just follow the rules and you’ll be able to navigate intersections like a pro.
