Giving way at a T-intersection

If you're driving on a road that ends at a T-intersection, you must give way to all vehicles—except those doing a U-turn—travelling on the road continuing through the intersection.

Giving way at intersections with 1 stop or give way sign

Giving way at a give way sign to an oncoming vehicle that is not at a stop sign or give way sign

You need to give way if you face a give way sign or a stop sign or if there are stop or give way lines on the road, even if the other driver, who is not facing a stop or give way sign, is turning right across your path.

GIVING WAY AT INTERSCETIONS PART 1

 Intersections ImageImageImage

 

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

  Giving way  

Give way means to slow down and, if necessary, stop in order to prevent a crash from happening.

You must always give way at a give way sign and check it's safe to continue. Give way signs are placed at intersections and other places where other vehicles have priority.

Changing Lanes and Merging

Written by Kat McLeod

Changing lanes

When you change lanes, you must give way to any vehicle in the lane you are moving into. This rule applies even if your lane is ending and you have to cross a lane line.

Don’t take risks when changing lanes. Before you change lanes, you must indicate for long enough to give warning to other road users

You must turn off your indicator after you have changed lanes or merged.

Merging

There are 2 different give way rules for merging.

Merging on roads that have lane markings

1. On roads where there are lanes marked on the road—if your lane comes to an end, you must give way to traffic already in the lane you are moving to. In this example, Vehicle A (white) must give way to Vehicle B (yellow).

Blind spots

Written by Ross Mcleod

A blind spot in a vehicle is an area around the vehicle that cannot be directly observed by the driver while at the controls, under existing circumstances. Blind spots exist in a wide range of vehicles: aircraft, cars, motorboats, sailboats, and trucks. Other types of transport have no blind spots at all, such as bicycles, horses, and motorcycles. Proper adjustment of mirrors and use of other technical solutions can eliminate or alleviate vehicle blind spots.

In transport, driver visibility is the maximum distance at which the driver of a vehicle can see and identify prominent objects around the vehicle.Visibility is primarily determined by weather conditions (see visibility) and by a vehicle's design.The parts of a vehicle that influence visibility include the windshield, the dashboard and the pillars. Good driver visibility is essential to safe road traffic.
