It’s in everyone’s interest that traffic right-of-way rules are understood and well publicized.  The laws are ever-evolving, and if you haven’t kept up in the last 5 years, there are things you need to know.  If you don’t understand an intersecting scenario and fail to yield appropriately, you’re likely to cause a collision or fatality.

Everyone has different internal compasses for “common sense” regarding how traffic should flow, and myths get repeated far too often.  The only way to know the rules is to read them for yourself.  This wesite simplifies the learning process and brings the answers to you.  We summarize Oregon right-of-way laws in common language and provide links to the Oregon Revised Statutes and pages of the Drivers Manual.  We prevent collisions by describing our obligations to yield to each other.  If you learn and apply even one concept from our site, you become a MUCH safer driver or bicyclist.
