ASK RACQ: Who gives way when exiting a carpark or driveway?
We’re regularly contacted by members who say they’re frustrated by the number of people who fail to give way correctly.
ANSWER: When entering or leaving a road, drivers must give way to vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians on the footpath or road.
In both pictures below, vehicle B must give way to vehicle A and the pedestrian before turning.
But what about the image below? Which vehicle must give way in this instance?
ANSWER: The green vehicle must give way to the red vehicle, even though the red vehicle is stopped at a stop sign. This is because cars entering and exiting from a driveway must give way to cars already on the road.
