Any operator of any motor vehicle violating the provisions of this section and failing to stop in accordance with the provisions of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code[1] or otherwise violating the provisions of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code by failing to adhere to the regulations set forth herein and in said code shall be subject to prosecution in accordance with the procedures, fines and penalties as set forth in the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code.

Every driver of a vehicle approaching the intersection on the first-named street or stop street in the direction indicated in each case shall stop the vehicle as required by the Vehicle Code and shall not proceed into or across the second-named or intersecting or through street until he has followed all applicable requirements of that section of the law.

From and after effective date hereof, the driver of a vehicle approaching a yield sign shall in obedience to the sign slow down to a speed reasonable for the existing conditions and, if required for safety to stop, shall stop before entering a crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering. After slowing down or stopping, the driver shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another roadway so closely as to constitute a hazard during the time the driver is moving across or within the intersection of roadways. If the driver is involved in a collision with a vehicle in the intersection or junction of roadways after driving past a yield sign, the collision shall be deemed prima facie evidence of failure of the driver to yield the right-of-way.
