Q&A - 4 Way Stop & a Yield
I drove to a 4 way stop intersection that had only single lanes in all four directions BUT also had a yield sign on my right hand. I stopped and then proceeded to turn right. My passenger said I had no need to come to a full stop and could proceed to turn right so long as I yielded to oncoming traffic or traffic from the left. I felt the yield sign was meant to take away the normal "first to the stop sign" right of way and a full stop was PARTICULARLY needed to ensure it was safe to turn right.
I have been unable to find distinct language that clarifies this. I saw many cars roll through and make right hand turns including an on duty police officer without stopping which suggests that others agree with my passenger. What are the laws in this odd case?
