While many issues such as right-of-way, stops and signals have already been discussed in prior sections, here is a review and additional laws to obey when approaching an intersection.

Intersection Traffic Control - Texas DOT

  • If your vehicle is facing a circular green signal and other vehicles and pedestrians have cleared, you may proceed straight, turn right or turn left, unless there is a sign prohibiting the turn.

  • When facing a green arrow signal, you may cautiously enter the intersection to move in the direction permitted by the arrow. You must yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian lawfully in an adjacent crosswalk and other traffic lawfully using the intersection.
