Common Failure to Yield Incidents

It seems that accidents happen every day due to a driver's failure to yield. It can happen under a wide variety of circumstances and for many different reasons. Some of the most common failure-to-yield accidents occur when drivers:

  • Hit pedestrians or bikes crossing in front of the stoplight
  • Merge onto freeways
  • Move through intersections without looking
  • Back up from parking spaces or driveways
  • Turn left and do not properly yield

Unfortunately, any number of these situations can create a serious accident. It is always better to err on the side of caution when it comes to yielding in your vehicle.
