In the state of Arkansas the law says that a driver must stop at a yield sign ONLY if required for safety.

In the general rules of the road the person with the stopsign must first stop and THEN yield to others approaching the intersection; the person with the yield sign is only obligated to stop if others are "approaching." If another car is stopped at the stop sign, it is not "approaching" the intersection. If it is not stopped, then it is certainly approaching, and you would have to yield to the car on the right, even if the driver is breaking the law by not stopping! This is the general rule of not taking priority when you cannot do so safely.

Does a driver who has a yield sign at an intersection have to yield to a person entering the intersection from a parking spot or a driveway?

Methinks you are torturing the question. I have yet to see a street intersection ALSO WITH a driveway entering directly onto the intersection.

Who has to stop at a yield sign?

you only have to stop at a yield sign if there is cross traffic - if it would not be safe for you to continue through the intersection. Typically only one road at the intersection will have a yield sign - the other one will either have no sign or a stop sign/light.

If you reach an uncontrolled intersection at close to the same time, the vehicle who actually reached the intersection last is the driver who must yield the right of way. If you reach the intersection at the same time, the driver on the left should yield the right of way.

What is the Yield traffic sign supposed to mean?

The Yield traffic sign is intended to represent to a driver who has the clear path to continue through an intersection first. It's intended to mean that a driver must yield to oncoming traffic from his or her right side. Yielding means allowing that incoming driver to go first. This is the concept known as right of way and the yield sign is supposed to mean that everyone can drive more safely within an orderly traffic system.

What action is required by the yield sign with regard to traffic laws in Texas?

A yield sign is used when a lane of traffic is entering another roadway but is not required to make a complete stop. It is most commonly used when a roadway is coming to an intersection with another roadway and there is a specific right turn lane which bypasses the actual intersection. Placed there will be a yield sign. The duty of the driver facing a yield sign is to yield the right of way to all traffic on the roadway in which they want to enter. It is illegal to enter that roadway unless it can be done safely.

A yield sign indicates that a driver?

Yield signs are red and white with red letters. These signs alert the driver to any upcoming hazards or road conditions that do not reflect an Immediate condition. A yield sign calls on the driver to do the following: Slow down, defer to oncoming or intersecting traffic, stop when necessary, proceed when safe, and remain aware of oncoming vehicles. A flashing yellow light has the same meaning as a yield sign. When a flashing yellow light is observed, the driver should be cautious both prior to and while passing through the intersection.

When there is a intersection and no sign do you yield?

At intersections without "STOP" or "YIELD" signs, slow down and be ready to stop. Yield to traffic and pedestrians already in the intersection or just entering the intersection.At "T" intersections without "STOP" or "YIELD" signs, yield to traffic and pedestrians on the through road. They have the right-of-way.

If you reach an uncontrolled intersection at the same time as a driver on your right and both of you are going to go straight who has the right of way?

Note: the law does not allow anyone the right-of-way, it only states who must yield. If two drivers arrive at an uncontrolled intersection at the same time, the driver on the left should yield to the driver on the right. When someone is legally required to yield the right-of-way and fails to yield, other drivers are required to yield for safety.

At an uncontrolled intersection always yield to the driver on the?

Right (assuming you're in a country which drives on the right, such as the US).

What happens if you have right of way at a four way intersection and you are hit by another car?

- A driver approaching an intersection must yield the right-of-way to traffic already in the intersection. (traffic in the intersection has the right of way) - If drivers are approaching an intersection from opposite directions, the driver turning left must yield to approaching traffic going straight or turning right. (traffic going straight or turning right has the right-of-way) - Two drivers at an intersection that arrived at the same time at a right angle. The driver on the left must yield the right-of way. ( the driver on the right has the right of way) -Never insist on the right-away

When turning left at green light do you yield to drivers turning right?

Yes, absolutely. The only exception is if the driver turning right has a yield sign. This is one of the most common mistakes I see in the area I live. Many times, the driver turning right has a yield sign. That would give priority to the driver turning left. However, if the driver turning right has no yield sign, she has the priority. There are so many yield signs in my area that drivers turning left automatically assume they have the right-of-way even if no yield sign is present for the driver turning right.

What does the road sign yield mean?

Let's identify first what a Yield sign is. The Yield sign is the only sign on the road (US) that is in the shape of a upside-down triangle with rounded corners, similarly to the stop sign, the stop sign is the only sign on the road that's in the shape of a octagon (has 8 sides). You'll usually see a Yield sign at an intersection, for instance traffic circles. You're not required to stop at the yield sign but you can if you have too to give way to traffic that doesn't have to stop period. Yield signs are not a sign that you blow through. The yield sign means that "You're not required to stop, but you don't have the right-of-way at this intersection." The yield sign is also less restrictive than the stop sign, you still have to give the right-of-way to other traffic, but you're not required to stop at a yield sign.

Rules of the road depend on where you live. What is true in one country might not be true in another.

Who is at fault if you have entered the intersection from the stop sign and the other car hits you after you are almost through the intersection?
