If there is no stop line or marked crosswalk 
at the intersection, you must stop within 
three metres (10 feet) of the intersecting 
roadway. Stop where you will not interfere with 
pedestrians who are crossing or are about to 
cross the roadway. 

Three and four-way stops:

Intersections where stop signs are
located at all corners are often referred
to as “courtesy corners.” Vehicles
approaching from each direction are
required to stop. All drivers must use
courtesy and caution. Courtesy is to allow
the vehicle that arrived first to proceed
first. If two vehicles arrive at the same
time, courtesy allows the vehicle on
the right to proceed first. You must not
proceed unless you can do so safely.

YIELD SIGNS

  A yield sign
means that you
must allow other
vehicles that do
not face a yield
sign the right-of-
way to proceed. When approaching a
yield sign, reduce speed as you near the
intersection and be prepared to stop.

You may be required to stop and yield
the right-of-way to traffic or pedestrians.
Wait for a safe gap in the traffic before
you proceed.
 

If there are no pedestrians or traffic
that you are required to yield to, you may
proceed through the intersection without
coming to a complete stop.

Your approach must be at a speed
that allows you to stop easily to prevent a
collision with another vehicle or person.



Vehicle at yield sign allows other vehicle 
to pass.

Uncontrolled
intersections

Some intersections have no traffic signs
and no traffic signal lights. At these
intersections, you must yield the right-of-
way to a vehicle on your right.
Check for traffic approaching from your
left and right when you are approaching
an intersection without a traffic control
device. Similar to an intersection
controlled by a stop sign, adjust
your speed to the visibility and road
conditions. Your view may be obstructed
by fences, trees, or parked cars. You
must reduce your speed enough to be
able to stop your vehicle easily. When
road conditions are slippery, reduce
your speed to allow for the increased
stopping distance.
