Reviewed for Safety
Few rules of the road are less
understood or more misunderstood
than those having to do with right-of-way,
according to the legal de
partment of the Oregon State Motor
Pointing out that many accidents
are caused by motorists who have
either a vague or mistaken idea
concerning right-of-way rules, the
motorists' organization presented the
following summary of revisions of
the Vehicle Code on the subject:
Drivers, when approaching high
way intersections, shall look out for
and give right of way to vehicles on
the right, simultaneously approach
ing a given point, whether such
vehicle first enters or reaches the
intersection or not; provided, that
the foregoing provisions shall not
apply at any intersection where and
when traffic is controlled by traffic
control signals or police officers.
Any driver entering an intersec
tion at an unlawful speed shall for
feit any right of way which he would
otherwise have under this rule.
When intending to turn left, the
driver must give a proper arm sig
nal continuously for the last fifty
feet before turning, but the actual
turn must not be made until it can
be done with reasonable safety. The
person turning must yield the right-
of-way to all oncoming traffic with
in the intersection or so close as to
constitute an immediate hazard.
Thereafter the driver may proceed
to make the turn, and oncoming
traffic approaching the intersection
must permit the turning car to pro
ceed. Upon entering an arterial or
through highway, the driver must
first stop and yield the right-of-way
to all traffic immediately approach
ing. Thereafter he may proceed and
all vehicles approaching the inter
section on the through highway must
yield the right-of-way to him.
Drivers entering public highways
from private roads or driveways
have no right-of-way, but must wait
until they can proceed safely..
Pedestrians have the right-of-way
within marked crosswalks or in un
marked crosswalks at the end of
a block. While pedestrians who
"jaywalk" do not have the right-of-way,
their safety remains an obli
gation of the motorist.
