Giving way

Giving way

Give way means to slow down and, if necessary, stop in order to prevent a crash from happening.


You must always give way at a give way sign and check it’s safe to continue. Give way signs are placed at intersections and other places where other vehicles have priority.


Remember, there are lots of situations on the road where you must give way even if there is no sign.


You need to give way if:


.the rules say that you must

.there’s a give way or stop sign

.there are stop or give way lines on the road

.you’re turning left across the path of an oncoming vehicle at an intersection

.you’re turning right or left at a T-intersection

.you’re moving onto a road from a driveway or land next to a road

.you’re moving off from being stopped on the side of the road

.you’re doing a U-turn

.you’re turning right at an intersection with a ‘right turn on red after stopping’ sign.
