What You Need To Know About Improper Intersection Approach

In Pennsylvania, when two vehicles approach or enter an intersection from different roads at approximately the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left has to yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.

If you want to make a left turn at an intersection, the driver approaching from the other direction has the right-of-way and you have to yield to them.

If you are found guilty of failing to yield to the driver on the right at an intersection, three points will be added to your driving record.

If you fail to yield to the oncoming driver when making a left turn, you can get three points.

To Enter A Highway Or Traffic Circle

  • If you are trying to enter a through highway, the traffic already on the through highway has the right-of-way
  • If you are trying to enter a limited-access highway, the traffic already on the limited-access highway has the right-of-way
  • If you are trying to enter a traffic circle, the traffic already in the traffic circle has the right-of-way

What To Do If The Police Pull You Over

  • Turn the ignition off but don’t get out of the car.
  • Don’t argue with the police officer or get angry.
  • Be polite.
