Failure To Yield
- Anytime there is a yield sign present, you must yield right-of-way to all other vehicles and pedestrians.
- If you’re waiting to cross the street and there is no pedestrian crosswalk signal present, you have the right-of-way only when the street is clear for you to begin crossing without causing a driver or bicyclist to slow down.
- When making a left turn you must yield to all oncoming traffic including right turning vehicles, unless the right turn lane has a yield sign. A right turning vehicle with a yield sign must yield to all other traffic at the intersection regardless of where they are coming from.
