One of the Most Confusing Road Rules Explained

Bumping Cars

Quick, answer this question without Googling it – there are four cars at a four-way stop intersection. Who goes first?

This is a scenario that can lead to a lot of confusion and a lot of traffic tickets.

The easier scenario is if one car clearly gets to the intersection first – in that case, the first vehicle at the 4-way stop has the right of way.

If it’s not clear which car arrived first or more than one car arrives at the same time, here’s the official rule – the car to the right has the right of way.

One important tip to keep in mind – even if you’re trying to be courteous, signaling for another car to go before you can be a bad idea. If the other car doesn’t legally have the right of way, but you wave them on and they then get into an accident because of it, you could be liable.

In a state where driving can be a bit of a challenge (to put it mildly), these are some good rules to keep in mind.
