9.4 SPECIAL CONDITIONS.
L o c a l regulations or
statutes, temporary signs and emergency signals, and
directions of traffic officers take precedence over
general rules of the road and other conditions or
privileges, including right-f-way.
9.5 PRIVILEGES AND RESTRICTIONS. A driver of a
vehicle traveling in the right-hand lane of a road
without making any signal for stopping or turning has
the right-of-way; that is, he has the right to continue
traveling without interference, e x c e p t under the
special conditions described in paragraphs 9.6 and 9.7,
which require him to yield his privileges to another
person. Failure to observe the rules of right-of-way
causes many accidents; even when you know that you
have the right-of-way, be sure that the other driver
will stop or yield before you proceed. Remember that
the other driver may not know that you have the
right-of-way; always keep your vehicle under control
and be ready to stop.
