Failing to yield the right-of-way is one of the most frequent causes of traffic collisions. If you see a yield sign ahead, be prepared to let other drivers crossing your road take the right-of-way. If there is no yield sign and you are pulling into a highway, slow down or stop if necessary and yield the right-of-way to traffic. It is important to drive safely and legally and always abide by all driving laws to avoid causing or increasing the risk of accidents which may have devastating consequences for you and others.
