When To Yield Or Stop When Turning Right
“The D Team” FIX IT #5 recommendations: PAINT A STOP LINE in the RIGHT-TURN LANE (arrow #1) in intersection picture above and remove the YIELD SIGN. According to DelDOT: “If… there is no striped or concrete island…this indicates that the right-turn movement is controlled by the traffic signal. In this situation there should be a STOP LINE across the right-turn lane,…and there should be no YIELD SIGN. The nearest signal head to the right-turn lane controls the right-turn movement.”
SPECIAL CONSIDERATION FOR DELDOT: There may be sufficient area to channel the right-turn lane in intersection picture above with a striped island. If that can be done, it would call for a YIELD before making a right-turn on a red traffic signal as well as a YIELD when making a right-turn on a green traffic signal.
