Give Way Lessons Note subject 2

This chapter introduces you to STOP and Give Way signs, as well as slip lanes and U-turns.

There are some situations when you don't have to give way according to the Give Way rules:

  • when the other vehicle is facing a Give Way or STOP sign
  • when the other vehicle is approaching from a slip lane
  • when the other vehicle is making a U-turn

Facing a Give Way or STOP sign

These signs are used to control traffic and are located:

  • at intersections where caution is needed due to limited visibility
  • where vehicles on the other road have priority

STOP lines and STOP signs

A STOP sign/line indicates that you must give way to all vehicles approaching, entering or travelling in the intersection - regardless of their direction. You must remain stationary until it’s safe for you to proceed. You must also give way to all pedestrians crossing the road that you are entering.

When you come across a STOP sign, you must come to a full stop before the STOP line. Position yourself as close as possible to the line. If there is no STOP line, you should come to a full stop close to, but before reaching the intersection.

A STOP line is a continuous line that is used along with, or instead of, a STOP sign.

Give Way lines and Give Way signs

If you come across a Give Way sign/line, you must slow down and prepare to stop. You must give way to all vehicles approaching, entering or travelling in the intersection - regardless of their direction. You must also give way to all pedestrians crossing the road that you’re entering.

A Give Way line is a broken line that is used along with, or instead of, a Give Way sign.

Multiple Give Way and STOP signs

If two or more drivers face STOP or Give Way signs at an intersection:

  1. They must first give way to all road users that aren’t facing STOP/Give Way signs as well as pedestrians
  2. After that, the drivers facing the signs should apply the general ‘Give Way’ rules to decide who proceeds first
Both cars face STOP signs and must apply the general Give Way rules - Car B must give way

Exemptions to STOP/Give Way signs

You must give way at STOP/Give Way signs unless:

  • the vehicle is turning left using a slip lane
  • the other vehicle is making a U-turn

Slip lanes

Car B is using slip lane and must give way to car A and C in (1), and car A in (2)

You must give way to all pedestrians and bicycles already on the slip lane, as well as all vehicles on or about to enter the road that you’re entering (unless they’re making a U-turn).

Giving way when making a U-turn

Car B is making a U-turn and must give way to car A

Give way to all other vehicles and pedestrians when you make a U-turn. This includes any traffic facing a STOP or Give Way sign.
