Right-of-Way

However…

If you are on a driveway or road that terminates (meaning that it doesn’t go through to the other side of the intersection), you need to yield the right-of-way to traffic in the through street, even if you don’t have a stop sign.For example:

  • In the example at left, the driver exiting the private driveway (Car B) does not have a stop sign, but state law requires anyone pulling out of a driveway to yield the right-of-way to the vehicles (such as Car A) on the through street.
  • When you exit a driveway—whether it is a residential driveway or the driveway at the local supermarket—you are required to yield to traffic in the through street, even if a stop sign is not posted.
  • Car B is driving on a road that terminates; it doesn’t go through to the other side of the “T” intersection. Even though Car B doesn’t have a posted stop sign, the driver needs to yield to traffic on the through street.
