A Federal Highway Administration study of 40,000 drivers at intersections controlled by stop signs revealed that two-thirds of drivers failed to stop. So, instead of assuming that other drivers will automatically yield right of way, you should pay careful attention to their intentions and actions.
Since they frequently require personal judgment, right-of-way laws are sometimes difficult to understand or apply. The following principles can help.
Entering a Roadway from Driveways, Alleys and Parked Position
Entering and Passing through Traffic Circles
Yielding to School Buses
Yielding to Pedestrians
Yielding to Funeral Processions
Entering an Intersection
Yielding to Emergency Vehicles
