20 Driving Tips - #10 Right-Hand Rule
Traveling down a busy street, you notice the traffic light at a mildly busy intersection isn't working. You approach the intersection at the same time as a car on your right in the intersecting street.
TO SAFELY GET THROUGH THE INTERSECTION:
- Treat the intersection as if it were a four-way stop.
Yield the right-of-way to the car on the right in the intersecting street. At a four-way stop if two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the vehicle on the left must yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right. So, in the given graphic, B should yield to A. Avoid being a personal injury statistic.
When in doubt at an intersection, remember the right-hand rule, which says the car to your right has the right of way.
