At some intersections, it may not be entirely necessary for a motorist to stop before proceeding across or merging into a lane. Instead, it may only be necessary for them to pay attention and yield the right of way to existing traffic before proceeding. When this is the case, yield signs are put in place to warn motorists of proper safety procedures and they must be obeyed. Otherwise, the motorist could receive a traffic ticket for committing a right of way violation. A motorist can also receive such a ticket for failure to yield to a pedestrian who is legally attempting to cross the street.
Due to the risk of accidents and injury involved with right of way violations, failure to yield will result in 3 points on your record, as well as a fine. The New York point system only allows motorists to gain up to 10 points within an 18-month period. Any more than that, and the driver's license will be suspended for 31 days. If you have been ticketed for failure to yield, call an attorney today to learn what steps you can take to defend yourself from such harsh penalties.
