    There is a yield sign in Oakville that I swear causes more accidents than any other yield sign in the country. Fortunately I don’t live near it and I try to avoid it as much as possible. I’m sure the cause for all the problems is drivers not understanding what the sign means and just barging into the oncoming traffic without checking first.

  2. I’m beginning to think most drivers think a yield sign means the same as a green light!
    Entering an Interstate Highway is another example; the idea of an on-ramp is you bring yourself up to speed and merge into a safe gap in traffic. If there is no safe gap, you are supposed to yield to traffic, not barge your way in and cut people off.

    Ok so I’m getting my license soon and we have to do 8 hours of driving with an instructor in order to be eligible for your license. I was doing my last hour and I was coming to a yield sign taking a right turn into another road. As I cand to it I slowed down and look to see if anything was coming. There was nothing in sight so I did not come to a complete stop and I made my right turn and continued down the road. The instructor then told me if this was my test I would have automatically failed because no matter what you have to come to a complete stop at a yield sign. And I told him I had never heard that before do I’m soooo confused. Thnx

      I’ve never heard of that either, in any jurisdiction. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding, either that or the instructor needs to brush up on the rule. 😉 My suggestion to you is to go online with your jurisdiction and find out yourself. Maybe you can help your instructor as well. Good luck!

    Yes! This drives me crazy! Why on earth would someone think they should slow down once inside the circle? Then again maybe they were almost hit by an idiot who doesn’t know how to yield to those inside the circle and therefore it’s a vicious cycle…a vicious traffic cycle.
