The driver of a vehicle shall stop at the entrance to a through street and shall yield the right-of-way to other vehicles which have entered the intersection or which are approaching so closely on a through street as to constitute an immediate hazard unless directed otherwise by the traffic officer or a traffic control signal.

10.2.3           STOP STREETS: The driver of a vehicle shall stop in obedience to a stop sign at an intersection where a stop sign is erected pursuant to ordinance, at one or more entrances thereto, and shall proceed cautiously, yielding to the vehicles not so obliged to stop which are within the intersection or approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard unless traffic at such intersection is controlled by a police officer on duty, in which event the directions of the police officer shall be complied with.

10.2.4           YIELD RIGHT OF WAY STREETS: Any street designated by ordinance as a yield right-of-way street and so posted is hereby declared to be a yield right-of-way street.

 

The driver of a vehicle in obedience to a yield right-of-way sign shall reduce the speed of his vehicle to not more than twenty (20) miles per hour and shall yield the right-of-way to other vehicles which have entered the intersecting street either from the right or left or which are approaching so closely on such intersection as to constitute a hazard; but said driver having so yielded may proceed at such time as a safe interval occurs.

 

If a driver is involved in a collision at an intersection or interferes with the movement of other vehicles after driving past a yield right-of-way sign, such collision shall be deemed prima facie evidence of the driver’s failure to yield the right-of-way.
