Four Way Stop Instructions

  1. First come, first served.

The first car to arrive at the intersection receives the right of way.

  1. Yield to right.

When two vehicles arrive at a 4-way stop simultaneously and are located side-by-side, the car furthest to the right has the right of way. If three vehicles arrive at the same time, the vehicle furthest left should continue to yield until both of the other cars to the right of them have passed.

  1. Straight over turning.

When two vehicles arrive at a 4-way stop at the same time, and they are located head-to-head, and one of the vehicles intends to turn, and the other intends to go straight, the vehicle going straight has the right of way. Make sure you also use your signals!

  1. Right over left.

When two vehicles arrive at a 4-way stop at the same time, and they are located head-to-head, and one of the vehicles intends to turn right, and the other intends to turn left, the vehicle turning right has the right of way.
