When you have a preference when driving? When do not?

When you have a preference when driving? When do not?

The general rule of preference we have all more or less clear. The preference is one right-hand traffic. But there are exceptions. Many. And the casuistry of everyday life is very broad.

Narrow and steep sections, which rises

In particularly narrow track sections where not fit two vehicles traveling in the opposite direction without signaling, Who has priority? In principle, who may have entered first, and above it, the greater difficulty maneuvering trucks on passenger cars and motorcycles on these basically. If also the case of a steep section, which circulates upwardly.

lanes intertwined

In many areas of our roads are lanes that serve both into and out. What if they are two conductors circulating in parallel and want to change lanes? Whose preference? Article 72 of Regulation Circulation forces give way to which it is incorporated, and 74.2 that changing lanes with a lateral displacement. That is, the two are preferred and both have to give way. Common sense should prevail, reminds us traffic, and in principle leaving a track should slow down and let the speed which it is incorporated.

Crossing in front

It is a very common situation. You get to a crossing and want to make a left turn. You are a vehicle coming from the front and wants to do the same, or go straight. Who takes precedence if both have a yield sign? Which he has first started the maneuver.

Giro and pedestrians crossing

We made a turn at an intersection for entering another road and pedestrians crossing is clearly not going to take you to the front. But, if inadvertently incident do you have preference even if there is a zebra crossing? Yes, they do, and if you circulate for the berm where pedestrians who do not have pedestrian zone.

More pedestrian

Pedestrians rise or fall of a bus at a stop sign posted as such, when they are between said vehicle and the pedestrian or nearest shelter is preferably. Also troops in training school organized rows or entourages.


Those great unknown to many, at least in legal matters. It seems that we are clear that who circulates within it takes precedence over those who want to enter. But not so much that who circulates outside lane, the right of the roundabout, takes precedence over that circulate inside rail. If a roundabout with more lanes always left must yield and will preferably who circulates right.

Via paved on unpaved

In many secondary roads are dirt roads intersections with the route itself. Who has priority? Always the vehicles on the paved road on which it is not.

Giro cycling

If you're going to make a turn right or left and there is a cyclist nearby, cyclist takes precedence. Also at a crossing, when circulating group. The first has already started the crossing or has entered into a roundabout. In any case, with the new traffic law cyclists preferences will increase city.
