Traffic on the highways or roadways described in Schedule VII of this Title shall yield the right-of-way before entering the intersection of the named highway or roadway described in Schedule VII.
[Ord. No. 88-39 §24.630, 7-6-1988]
A. 
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, or shall stop if necessary and shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian crossing the roadway on which the vehicle is being driven. Said driver shall also yield to any vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another highway or roadway so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard. After yielding, said driver may proceed, and the drivers of all other vehicles approaching the intersection shall yield to the vehicle so proceeding; provided, however, that a driver who enters a yield intersection without stopping and has or causes a collision with a pedestrian in a crosswalk or a vehicle in the intersection shall prima facie be considered not to have yielded as required by this Title. The foregoing shall not relieve the drivers of other vehicles approaching the intersection at such distance as not to constitute an immediate hazard from the duty to drive with due care to avoid a collision.
B. 
The driver of a vehicle approaching a yield sign, if required for safety to stop, shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection. In the event there is no crosswalk, said driver shall stop at a clearly marked stop line, but if none, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where a driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway.
[Ord. No. 88-39 §24.635, 7-6-1988]
A. 
Except when directed to proceed, by a Law Enforcement Officer or traffic signal, every driver of a vehicle approaching a stop intersection indicated by a stop sign shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection. In the event there is no crosswalk, the driver shall stop at a clearly marked stop line, but if none, then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where a driver would have a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering the intersection.
B. 
The driver after having stopped shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle which has entered the intersection from another roadway or which is approaching so closely on said roadway as to constitute an immediate hazard. Said driver, having yielded, may proceed and the drivers of all other vehicles approaching the intersection shall yield the right-of-way to the vehicle proceeding.
[Ord. No. 88-39 §24.640, 7-6-1988]
The driver of a vehicle emerging, either by forward motion or backing, from an alleyway, private roadway, driveway, or building shall stop the vehicle immediately prior to driving onto a sidewalk or onto the sidewalk area and shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian as may be necessary to avoid collision. Upon entering the highway or roadway, the driver shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching on the highway or roadway.
[Ord. No. 88-39 §24.645, 7-6-1988]
No driver shall enter an intersection or a marked crosswalk unless there is sufficient space on the other side of the intersection or crosswalk to accommodate the vehicle the driver is operating without obstructing the passage of other vehicles or pedestrians, notwithstanding any traffic signal indication to proceed.
[Ord. No. 88-39 §24.650, 7-6-1988]
A. 
Whenever any person driving a vehicle approaches a railroad crossing under any of the circumstances stated in this Section, the driver of the vehicle shall stop a minimum of fifteen (15) feet from the nearest rail of the railroad, and shall not proceed until safe to do so. The foregoing requirements shall apply when:
1. 
A clearly visible electric or mechanical signal device gives warning of the immediate approach of a railroad train.
2. 
A crossing gate is lowered or when a human flag holder gives or continues to give a signal of the approach or passage of a railroad train.
3. 
A railroad train approaching within approximately one thousand five hundred (1,500) feet of the highway or roadway crossing emits a signal audible from such distance and the railroad train, by reason of its speed or nearness to such crossing, is an immediate hazard.
4. 
An approaching railroad train is plainly visible and is in hazardous proximity to such crossing.
B. 
No person shall drive any vehicle through, around, or under any crossing gate or barrier at a railroad grade crossing while the gate or barrier is closed or is being opened or closed.
[Ord. No. 88-39 §24.655, 7-6-1988]
Every motor vehicle transporting passengers for hire, every school bus, and every motor vehicle transporting high explosives or poisonous or compressed inflammable gases and every motor vehicle used for the transportation of inflammable or corrosive liquids in bulk, whether loaded or empty, shall, upon approaching any railroad grade crossing, be brought to a full stop a minimum of fifteen (15) feet from the nearest rail of the railroad grade crossing, and shall not proceed until due caution has been taken to ascertain that the course is clear. Such full stop shall not be required at a railroad grade crossing protected by a guard or Law Enforcement Officer on duty or by a traffic signal, or railroad flashing signal, giving indication to approaching vehicles to proceed.
[Ord. No. 88-39 §24.660, 7-6-1988]
A. 
The driver of a vehicle approaching an intersection from any highway, roadway or alleyway shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle which has entered the intersection from a different highway, roadway or alleyway, absent other directions from a traffic control device or Law Enforcement Officer.
B. 
When two (2) vehicles enter an intersection from different highways, roadways, or alleyways at approximately the same time, the driver on the left shall yield the right-of-way to the driver of the vehicle on the right. This Subsection shall not apply to vehicles approaching each other from opposite directions when the driver of one (1) vehicle is attempting to or is making a right turn.
C. 
The driver of a vehicle within an intersection intending to turn to the left shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close to the intersection as to constitute an immediate hazard.
D. 
The driver of a vehicle intending to make a left turn into an alley, private road or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction when the making of the left turn would create a traffic hazard.
