Right-of-Way

A driver yields the right-of-way to other drivers or pedestrians:

  • When making a right turn on red (after a complete stop).
  • After coming to a complete stop at an intersection where there is a stop sign or flashing red signal. If there is no stop line, stop before the crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk or stop line, stop before entering the intersection so that you can see all approaching traffic and cross-traffic.
  • When making a left-hand turn. If you enter the intersection when the light is green, you are allowed to complete your turn even though the light turns red.
  • When exiting an alley, building, private road, or driveway. The driver should come to a complete stop before crossing the sidewalk and stop a second time to check for cross-traffic before crossing the curb to enter traffic.
  • Some vehicles always have the right-of-way on the road.

  • When you encounter an emergency vehicle using its lights and sirens, immediately pull to the right side of the road, stop your vehicle if possible, and allow the emergency vehicle to pass.
