Give Way Lessons Note subject 3

Besides 4-way and T-intersections, there are many other situations when you must give way.

Entering or leaving the traffic stream

In general, you should give way when entering or leaving the traffic stream. There are many examples, such as when entering traffic through a break in the median strip, entering/leaving a driveway or leaving a parked position.

Divided Roads

When turning on a road that is divided by a median or dividing strip, you must follow any signs on the road you are turning from.

Also, you must give way to traffic on the road you are crossing/entering when turning using a break in the median strip.

Entering or leaving the road

When entering/leaving a road to/from a property or driveway, you must give way to pedestrians and vehicles.

Entering traffic from a parked position

You must give way to pedestrians and other vehicles when you leave a parked position to enter the traffic stream. Always signal for at least 5 seconds before moving from a stationary position at the side of the road or a median strip parking.

Also, remember to check the blind spot by looking over your shoulder before you pull out from the kerb or change lanes, but not for more than a second.

Giving way at pedestrian crossings

Car B must stop for the pedestrian on the crossing

You must always give way to pedestrians and cyclists on or about to enter a pedestrian or children’s crossing. Approach at a safe speed from which you’re safely able to stop if anyone decides to cross.

Don’t overtake a vehicle that has stopped to give way at a crossing.

Bridges

Sign indicating a narrow bridge ahead

If the bridge is unable to fit two vehicles passing each other, give way to a driver who is approaching or is on the bridge.

A ‘Give Way’ sign on a bridge means that you must give way to all vehicles from the opposite direction.

Bridges are often narrow and you should drive carefully to avoid a collision or accident
