T Intersections- Defensive Driver Tips

Driving through a T-intersection can be a bit tricky, but as long as you follow a few simple rules it can be easy and safe. Here are a few tips for driving through T-intersections:

  • 1. Always yield to traffic that is already on the road that you are trying to enter.
  • 2. If there is no traffic on the road that you are trying to enter, then you can proceed without yielding.
  • 3. When turning left at a T-intersection, always turn into the lane that is closest to the center of the intersection.
  • 4. When turning right at a T-intersection, you can turn into either lane, but be sure to signal before you turn.
  • 5. When going straight through a T-intersection, you can stay in the lane that you are in, or merge into the other lane if it is clear.

Following these simple tips will help you navigate through a T-intersection safely and easily.

If you approach a T intersection and your street ends at the through street, you must first stop, then yield the right-of-way to the vehicles on the through street. If there is more than one turn lane you may turn from the center lane.
