Pedestrians. Yield to all pedestrians. If a
pedestrian stops to permit you to pass, you may do so;
but, as common courtesy, do not force pedestrians to
stop and yield for your vehicle.
H o r s e s and Bicycles. Yield to riders of
horses or bicycles, and to horse-drawn vehicles. Like
pedestrians, these people are particularly handicapped
because (although they must follow the laws and
regulations for traveling on public roads) they lack the
speed, maneuverability, and protection available to the
driver of a motor vehicle. Drivers of motor vehicles
should show consideration for these conditions.
9.7 INTERSECTIONS. Most accidents that occur at
intersections are the result of poor judgment and
failure to yield the right-of-way (Figure 15). When in
doubt, yield to other traffic. Signs and signals usually
reduce the possibility of such accidents.
Intersections Without Signals or Signs. Yield
the right-of-way to vehicles approaching from the
right and to those that have already entered the
right-of-way to a vehicle making a left turn across
your route if the vehicle has started to turn before you
reach the intersection.
9 . 8 TURNING SAFELY. Turning safely requires that
you know where you want to make a turn and prepare
for it well in advance of the turn-off point. Prepare
for turns by checking the position of other vehicles
