The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that more than 36,000 people died in vehicle crashes in North America In 2019; that's a death roughly every 15 minutes.
NHTSA also attributes 94 percent of crashes to human error. Many crashes are due to not yielding to other road users.
To help keep safe here are some tips about Yielding. Driving laws say right of way must be yielded to other road users in the following instances;
• At a yield sign
• To pedestrians in a crosswalk
• At uncontrolled intersections where vehicles are already in the intersection
• At uncontrolled "T" intersections where you must yield to vehicles on the right
• When turning left in which case you must yield to oncoming pedestrians, vehicles, etc.
