Road Safety Reminder for the Week

THE RIGHT OF WAY RULES (Part 2 of 6)

At Through Highways with STOP Signs:

  • After you have stopped for a STOP sign, let any cars that are within the intersection (or approaching so closely that they may hit you) pass before you enter the through highway. On a divided highway, consider the danger of approaching cars on the further roadway before crossing it. Continue to yield the right of way at a STOP sign until such a time as you can proceed with reasonable safety.
  • All vehicles on any secondary road which intersects with a through highway must STOP before entering or crossing the through highway, even if no official STOP sign is posted. If you are on the through highway and you see a vehicle some distance ahead that is crossing or about to cross after it has stopped at a STOP sign, you must slow down and allow the vehicle to proceed. (Motor Vehicle code of Guam Section 3326).

Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through all construction zones, observe all posted speed limit and construction signs, and carefully heed to flaggers. Alternative routes and/or adjusting drive times when feasible are encouraged.
