When must a driver yield the right of way?
Safety Laws and the Drivers License TestIf you research your state's driver manual, you'll find that you're required to yield the right-of-way for the following situations:
- You must pull over and stop for any emergency vehicle with emergency lights flashing and/or siren blaring.
- You must yield the right-of-way to vehicles already within a rotary.
- You must yield to pedestrians.
- You must yield to traffic already lawfully using an intersection.
- You must yield in all turning-left situations, including alleys, intersections and parking lots.
- You must yield to all traffic on a main road when approaching from a driveway, alley, side ramp or side road.
If you're studying for your drivers license test, you'll need to familiarize yourself with all driving rules, including when to yield. Your state's drivers handbook explains every safety rule in detail. You can obtain a manual, for free, from your local DMV office. Within its pages you'll find everything you'll need to know to obtain a drivers license.
After studying, be sure to take a driver license practice test. These can be found online. Take as many practice tests as needed until you feel test-confident.
