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 stop sign 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. ( Full Answer )
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.
Clinton Riggs, an Oklahoma Highway Patrolman, got the idea for a yield sign while attending a traffic institute meeting in 1939 at Chicago. The war years slowed its development but in 1959 the first yield sign was used at a dangerous intersection in Tulsa. It lowered the number of accidents. S…oon the Keystone-shaped yield sign became popular and was adopted by cities and states across the nation. Riggs, who also had a successful career with the Tulsa Police Department, is credited with designing the Tulsa police shoulder patch in the same shape as the yield sign. ( Full Answer )
