AMI 906 Right of Way—Four–Way Stop Intersection
Drivers on different streets who are approaching an intersection which is protected by four-way stop signs have certain duties under the law.
The law requires that the driver of a vehicle approaching a stop sign at a four-way stop must stop and, having stopped, shall yield the right of way to another vehicle which, in the exercise of ordinary care, has already entered the intersection.
If vehicles are approaching a four-way stop intersection from different [highways][streets] at such relative speeds and distances from the intersection that both vehicles will enter the intersection at the same time, or if both enter the intersection at the same time, the law requires the driver of the vehicle on the left to yield the right of way to the vehicle on the right.
A violation of these rules governing the approach to a four-way stop intersection, although not necessarily negligence, is evidence of negligence to be considered by you along with all of the other facts and circumstances in the case.
