Do You Know Where To Stop?

Right of way at uncontrolled intersections

When you are approaching an intersection that is NOT controlled by

 a stop or yield sign or a traffic control signal system,

every driver shall yield the right of way to any vehicle in the intersection that has entered it from an intersecting highway.

When two vehicles enter an intersection from intersecting highways at approximately the same time, the driver on the left shall yield the right of way to the vehicle on the right. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 135 (3).


Stop at through highway

Every driver approaching a stop sign at an intersection,

(a) shall stop his or her vehicle at a marked stop line

or, if none,

(b) then immediately before entering the nearest crosswalk

or, if none,

(c) immediately before entering the intersection;


crosswalk means,

(a) that part of a highway at an intersection that is included within the connections of the lateral lines of the sidewalks on opposite sides of the highway measured from the curbs or, in the absence of curbs, from the edges of the roadway, or

(b) any portion of a roadway at an intersection or elsewhere distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by signs or by lines or other markings on the surface;
