Junction with Yield sign When you have Yield -sign (give way sign), you must give way all traffic on main street. So every one who are driving from left or right side.
You must make sure that you won't disturb anyone on a main street when you join to the road. Also you have to give way for cyclists.
The red car on the main street can drive first
You must stop and then yield all traffic on main street (left and right). You must stop always no matter of traffic situation and your vehicle have to stand still for moment. Do stop on on white stop-line. If there is no stop-line, you must stop before the junction in a place where you can see all traffic on main street. Remember to stop before pedestrian crossing.
Traffic lights You can drive to junction when you get the Green light. But if you Turn to left there might be oncoming traffic in a junction at the same time with you. Also there might be pedestrians and cyclists on zebra crossing after the turning.
