Question: Who Has Right Of Way At Opposing Stop Signs?

Who has the right of way at opposing stop signs?

The NHTSA gives rules for the United States.

Right of way goes to the first person to stop.

So if a line of cars were at both stop signs, and all cars wanted to make the same conflicting turns, they would alternate.

If the opposing cars stop at the same time then the one turning right has the right of way.

Who has the right of way when making a left turn at a stop sign?

THE GENERAL LEFT TURN LAWS: Left turns shall yield to oncoming traffic. The driver reaching the intersection first has the right-of-way unless turning left. When two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the one on the right has the right-of-way.

Does the person going straight have the right of way?

You yield (give up) the right of way to that driver by letting him go first. If you reach an uncontrolled intersection at close to the same time, the vehicle who actually reached the intersection last is the driver who must yield the right of way.

How do you know who has the right of way?

A controlled intersection is an intersection that has either stop signs or a traffic light. These are the simplest situations to determine right of way because you can use the signs and lights as your guide. If you and another vehicle arrive at a stop sign at the same time, yield to the car to your right side.
