3. Yield

Yield

You should neither insist on taking the right-of-way nor insist that others take it when they are hesitant to do so.


If two vehicles enter an intersection from different directions at the same time and the intersection is controlled by stop signs in all directions or the signal light is not working, the driver on the right has the right of way. Otherwise, the driver reaching the intersection first, or is already in the intersection, has right of way .


Yield the right of way to emergency vehicles by pulling to the right when possible . If not possible to pull over, as in heavy traffic, pull as far to the right as traffic allows and stop your vehicle until the emergency vehicle has passed.


Right-of-way rules should be accompanied with common sense and courtesy.


YIELD laws are universally accepted by all 50 states, based upon the National Uniform Vehicle Code. The purpose of ANY yield law is to clear a roadway or intersection as quickly and safely as possible.


These YIELD laws are likely to be on your permit test! YIELD LAWS are covered in the Vehicle Code, Sections 21800 - 21806
