I think maybe I need some example to understand. Let's assume in each of these situations below myself and one other car arrive at the SAME time at a 4 way stop. In each of these situations who proceeds first?
a) another car arrives at the same time as me, on my right?
b) another car arrives at the same time as me, on my left?
c) another car arrives at the same time as me, directly opposite me and signals to make a left turn across my path?
I think the answers are a) other car b) me c) me ?
A TERTIARY rule about the longest drive! Wow, that is really non-obvious and very interesting. I would have guessed the driver going straight would have the right of way. Well, now I know and I'll just hope the other drivers do this correctly as well. In my small town they've replaced some 4-ways and 3-ways with roundabouts and I wish they'd do it for EVERY such intersection because they're fantastic. Until then at least now I know how these things work (finally.) Thanks for the fantastic answers!
