Best Answer

The driver with the lights off. He/she violated traffic laws and thereby created a traffic hazard resulting in an accident. Not true. I turned in front of a lady at night who didnt have her lights on. The weather was rainy, it was cold out, and not well lit. I only saw her when she used her turn signal to switch lanes, in the intersection, and she took off after she hit the back of my car. She eventually came back 15-20 mins later, but I was still cited and had to pay for her repairs since I was the one who turned in front of her regardless of the circumstances. I thought she was in the wrong since A) she didnt have her lights on, B) she switched lanes in an intersection, which is illegal in Ohio, and C) that she didnt immediately pull over. Lesson learned.

An intersection with no lights or signs is called what?

Uncontrolled intersection


What is controlled intersections?

Controlled intersections have traffic lights, yield signs or stop signs to control traffic. At a controlled intersection where you face a green light, drive carefully through the intersection at a steady speed. If the light has been green for a while, be prepared to stop when it turns yellow. However, if you are already so close that you cannot stop safely, drive through the intersection with caution. Where you face a red light, come to a complete stop and wait until the light turns green. When you approach an intersection on a main road, and the intersection is blocked with traffic, stop before entering the intersection and wait until the traffic ahead moves on. This does not apply if you are turning left or right. At a controlled intersection where you face a yield sign, slow down or stop if necessary and wait until the way is clear before driving through the intersection. At a controlled intersection where you face a stop sign, come to a complete stop. Drive through the intersection only when the way is clear (Diagram 2-15).

What are the 13 right-of-way rules?

At a four way intersection with four stop signs, the first driver there has the right of way. At this same intersection, if you arrive at the same time as a driver beside you, the person to the right has right of way. At a two stop sign intersection, the drivers on the cross street with no stop sign have right of way. The first person to either stop sign has right of way. If you arrive at the stop sign at the same time as someone across with a stop sign and one of you is turning left, the other person has the right of way. At a T intersection with no stop sign, the person at the top of T has right of way. Any person on the road has right of way over anyone coming out of a driveway or parking lot. A person going forward has right of way over a driver going in reverse. A driver on the freeway has right of way over those merging onto freeway. A driver in their lane has right of way over a driver making a lane change into their lane. A driver with a green light, going straight, has right of way over drivers or pedestrians crossing the street. At an intersection with no signs or signals, a driver to the right has right of way. At an intersection with no signal lights a pedestrian has right of way. *These are based on the laws in the state of Oregon. Other states and territories may be slightly different.


How do you make a turning signal for a car?

Almost every car nowadays come with a turning signal. If you do not have a turning signal, a legal way to signal that you are going to turn would be to stretch out your hand in the direction that you are turning to. Otherwise, you can install two lights (flashing or not) on the two corners of your car. Link it to the buttons near the driver's seat for convenience, and press the button to activate the lights as a signal.


What does it mean System is control or system is out of control?

If you have ever approached a large intersection in a sizable city, but the traffic lights are all blinking red, this would be a System is out of control situation. All vehicles must stop at the intersection barrier lines (crosswalk), then proceed when it is safe. When the System is in control, the intersection's right-of-way is being controlled by the lights, and the vehicles are flowing through the intersection in one direction while the vehicles in the crossing direction are waiting their turn... the system controls the flow.


What is a partially controlled intersection?

Controlled intersections have traffic lights, yield signs or stop signs to control traffic.

If one driver is turning left and the opposing driver is turning right doesn't the left-turning driver have the right-of-way if the right-turning driver is in a turning-lane and do you have a source?

If the right turning driver is in the turning lane without lights then you have the right away to turn left. If he is in a meiddle strip then you still have the right away because the rule is the right hand turning driver must first give way to traffic to the left and or right and then any oncoming traffic going straight or turning left into the horizontal road. This is for Countries that drive on the left side of the road. If you drive on the right side of the road then i assume this answer would be reversed and he would have the right away. I have no sources for this but i suggest you go to a website containing road rules for your country cause everywhere is different even with states within your own country. My answer might only apply to where I live, if you live in Australia then take my answer 100% as correct.
