Yielding is imperative to your safety as a driver

Whether your commute is 10 miles or 50 miles, driving in California can have its fair share of questionable moments. Especially, if you are driving around motorists who are inexperienced, distracted, careless or fatigued. At E&E Law Group, understand the risks that drivers face when they are commuting and traveling between destinations. 

A commonly misunderstood aspect of driving is yielding. Sometimes, you may have a difficult time distinguishing who's right of way it is, especially in an area where it is congested and there is a lot going on. Even the slightest misstep can put you at risk of crashing into someone else who also thought it was their turn to go. 

According to safemotorist.com, you are always required to yield in the following circumstances:

  • When you are turning at an intersection and there is moving traffic. 
  • When you see pedestrians who are crossing in a designated crosswalk and with the appropriate signal.
  • When you are reentering traffic after having been parked on the shoulder of a road. 
  • When there is a yield sign. 

Yielding requires you to watch carefully for an opening in traffic and then being efficient about your entry to avoid disrupting the flow of traffic. If you are waiting for pedestrians to cross, make sure they have crossed the street completely before you proceed into the road. When you understand how to yield and are cautious and attentive about how you maneuver into traffic that is already moving, you can protect yourself and your passengers.
