Yield To The Driver On The Right!

What do you do when you come to an intersection in PA when there isn’t any light?

Or what do you do when two cars approach a stop sign at almost exactly the same time?

The Road Warrior over at the Morning Call has an answer from PA’s Vehicle Code-

A final point regarding right-of-way rules, and this applies to three- or four-way-stop intersections of any type, whether signalized but without power, or with stop signs in all directions. From the state Vehicle Code: “When two vehicles approach or enter an intersection from different [roadways] at approximately the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left shall yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.” This circumstance occurs with frequency at busy three- and four-way stop intersections, yet I never knew a specified procedure existed till 2004, when a reader asked about it. I’d only been driving for 37 years.

Now you know! 🙂
