4 Way Stops
Who has the right of way at an intersection that has stop signs at every corner?
The first car to make a full stop will then go first. However, you need to be making eye contact with the other drivers to make sure they are on the same page as you. If you and another vehicle arrive at the intersection at the same time, whoever is on the right should go first. If you and another vehicle are facing one another but both have arrived at the same time, the one going straight through should go first. Other things to consider is what if the other car’s turn signal is not working or if the other has forgotten to indicate their intention to make a turn? What if you have a hard time recognizing who arrived at the intersection first? In other words, you are creeping to a stop and can’t remember if you stopped first or the other cars did? You should be keeping an eye on their tires. When you had come to a stop was their tires still moving? It so hard nowadays because sometimes tend to do a rolling stop. Yes but if you make a full stop and it is your turn to go, you will force the other drivers to do the same because they are waiting for you make your move. When you have made your full stop and it is your turn to go, you should proceed once you’ve made eye contact with the other drivers, otherwise you will confuse the other drivers of your intention and become unpredictable on the road. What if it’s my turn to go and a pedestrian begins to cross in front of my car and now other vehicles are going out of turn. What happens to my turn now? Well after the pedestrian has crossed, you are still the first one up to go. Make your eye contact with the other road users and proceed.
