An intersection is where 2 or more roads meet, and includes where a slip lane meets a road.

A T-intersection is where 2 roads meet (whether or not at right angles) and one of the roads ends.

Giving way at intersections with 2 stop signs or give way signs

Giving way when there is a stop sign and a give way sign.

A stop sign is not more powerful than a give way sign when giving way. When 2 drivers arrive at stop or give ways signs at the same time, the stop sign becomes the equivalent of a give way sign. Both vehicles must give way to other vehicles before they must give way to each other.

Giving way when there is a stop sign and a give way sign

In this example, 2 vehicles are opposite each other at an intersection. Vehicle A (in white) has a give way sign. Vehicle B (in yellow) has a stop sign.

Vehicle A (white) must give way to Vehicle B (yellow) because it is turning right across the path of Vehicle B (yellow).
