6 STOPPING  If approaching a stop sign, light, yield, or another stopped car check your rear view mirror.  When stopped if you do not have a clear line of sight, ease forward so that you can see.  When stopping behind another vehicle always stop where you can see their back tires touching the pavement

7 RIGHT OF WAY  Privilege of having immediate use of a certain part of the roadway REMEMBER……  Your action shouldn’t cause others to yield, stop, change path of direction, or slow  Signs do not stop traffic for you  Don’t Assume  Many times it is better to yield anyway

8 WHO AND WHAT??  At stop signs to pedestrians  At fresh green lights to pedestrians and other cars  Coming from an alley, driveway, or private road to pedestrians and other vehicles on street  At all yield signs  To emergency vehicles (lights and sound)  When turning left at intersection  Four-way stops  At uncontrolled intersections

9 JUDGING  Before entering traffic you must find a large enough gap in traffic  Depends on your maneuver and the speed of the other vehicle

10 CONTROLLED INTERSECTIONS  Fresh green light- just turned  Stale green light- long time  Yellow- decide to stop or proceed  Red- STOP
