Failing to Yield at a Stop Sign
There are multiple traffic laws for yielding the right of way. For instance, at stop signs, uncontrolled intersections, turning, etc. When attempting to turn left, the driver must yield the right of way to any oncoming traffic to avoid a car crash. Failing to yield the right of way is a common cause of car accidents and can lead to significant injuries and damages.
National statistics reveal that one-third of all intersection crashes in the United States happen at stop sign intersections. That is about 700,000 car accidents happening annually at stop sign intersections.

• The driver is in a hurry.
• Rolling stop or failing to come to a complete stop.
