Let the top of the T go first after give way rules change
On March 25, to make our roads safer, two of the give way rules are changing.
These changes will affect all drivers, riders, pedestrians and cyclists. Remember to share the road, obey all road signs and signals, and make sure you know the new rules.
When you’re turning right from the bottom of a T-intersection with no signs or signals, you will need to give way to all vehicles at the top of the T.
So at all T-intersections and driveways, including public driveways such as at a supermarket or hospital, think ‘‘Top of the T goes before me’’. If you’re turning right, give way. This rule will apply at intersections where two vehicles are facing no signs or signals, or the same signs or signals.
You will need to give way to left-turning vehicles coming from the opposite direction if you are turning right.
