Which car has priority ? This situation makes many motorists doubt

Priority rules are not always easy à to understand. Many drivers do not know how to respond correctly to questions. that question.

The specificities of the Highway Code sometimes lead to difficult situations à to understand. Who at the wheel has not stopped? at least once the question of knowing what he should do? Unless you have infused knowledge, probably not many people. This is most often when cars meet at each other. intersections that the most complex cases arise. It must be said that when two roads cross, vehicles can arrive from four different directions at the same time. The presence of traffic lights often makes it possible to indicate which cars can drive and which must stop. But when there isn't one, there's sometimes enough to get your brain in knots.

This is the case of the situation in this photo, taken from a video from the Security question bank. Road test for the Highway Code exam. We see two cars facing each other, each of them stopped in front of each other. a STOP, while a third arrives from the right. Two questions are then asked of the candidate. The first is to know if vehicle A which wishes to go in front must give way on each side.

As it is arrestedé à a STOP, and that there are no markings on the ground in both directions of traffic on the road he is about to enter. cross, the answer is rather easy: YES he must give way on each side. Là whereù It gets complicated, it's when you're asked to do it. to learner drivers if vehicle A benefits from priority passing on vehicle B.

Which car has priority ? This situation makes many motorists doubt

Unlike the first scenario, the two cars find themselves in front of a traffic sign, a STOP, forcing them à stop. The question is which of the two cars will have priority? on the other when restarting. This scenario can disturb any driver, it is not uncommon when it happens to see the two motorists score a long downtime as if to leave the other the first of the decision (and thus avoid making a mistake). However, if you look closelyé the image, one detail was disappointed. get your attention. Vehicle B activated his flashing light to indicate that he intended to turn left. A detail that is very important…

To find the answer, it is necessary to imagine the two vehicles moving towards each other . As a reminder, vehicle A wants to go straight when vehicle B wants to turn to the left. The latter will therefore modify its trajectory to "cut" the route of vehicle A which will thus end up on its right. The priority rule à right, registered in the Highway Code, will therefore apply since the two cars this time no longer have any road markings in front of them. As car A has priority, it will go first, car B still having to wait before changing direction.

The priority rule à right is not the one that motorists master the most, there is only one left. see the behavior of certain drivers on the road to see it. However, due to the risk of serious accidents that a refusal of priority can cause, à right, the sanction is severe. It condemns offenders & pay a fine of 135 euros (reduced to 90 in the event of rapid payment) and deduct 4 points from their driving license. Enough to encourage à carefully review your Highway Code.
