What is the right of way at an intercession?

Cars & Vehicles
Rules of the Road

Traffic laws and regulations are designed to create rules to ensure safety of drivers and pedestrians alike. At its core "right of way," means that all other traffic and pedestrians get to move before you do - at all times and regardless. In effect the traffic of others is more important, and failing to give them right of way can cause and accident or result in serious injury or death. At an intersection right of way can mean yielding to incoming traffic during a left green signal (without an arrow) where permitted. It can also mean a two or four way stop intersection where you can only cross by turn or when it is clear.
