I will be using my tow dolly so won't be towing 4 down.

That may have been the law in Oregon but has anyone noticed that just about in every if not all states that I travel in they have taken the Yield signs down on the on ramps? If I am cruisin down the highway at 55-65 mph and I hit a car or truck merging onto the highway I will get the ticket, least ways that is what was explained in many of the safety seminars that I have been involved with. Just my 2cents worth.

Wow. That is certainly news to me--not that something couldn't have changed over the years and I never became aware of it. But I certainly was taught and have understood all these many years of driving that if I were merging onto the highway or freeway, I was the one required to yield the right-of-way if required??

When was the last time you saw a yield sign coming down a onramp?

In NYS you yield right of way when merging into traffic, there are indeed yield signs, and the same for SC. In fact, in most states the VTL states you must yield right of way when entering a highway

I can only speak for the state of Wa. but the yeild signs are no longer maintained ( a budget thing I think) but the yeild law is still in effect. The main line has the rightaway. Our local paper has a collum called the "Road Warror". The guy that writes it looks into things like this and within the last year he said what I put above and it came from the WSP.

Yield slow down give right of way while merging? what a barrel of giggles........ floor it get up to highway speed signal and merge. Only a truck cant get there as fast so get the heck out of the way and stop looking for loop holes in the law to give you car blanch to drive stupid.

I don't remember ever seeing a yield sign on a freeway on-ramp. Have you ever seen a yield sign on the freeway when approaching an on-ramp?
When was the last time you saw a yield sign an a 4-way stop...? The right-of-way is not always posted, but known to be the vehicle on the right at a 4-way stop.

Oh well...

BTW, I almost always give way to merging traffic; especially to truckers because I know they need help getting up to speed and merging into traffic. And to any vehicle merging properly. With a proper merge one does not have to slow down because they are matching their speed to the main traffic and watching for a slot to move into. If the main traffic is heavy with no apparent slots then you don't romp on it, you don't increase your speed until you see a break in traffic. If done properly it works 99% or the time.



P.S. carte blanche

It's funny, I didn't think the various state VTL's were stupid. They are written for a reason. Many entrance ramps are extremely short and it's only common sense (which BTW is very lacking in todays world) to yield until you have enough room to build up to highway speed. It's just people today have become so self centered that they think they are the only ones who should have carte blanche on the road and motorists should either conform to them or get the heck out of their way. I have responded to many an accident in NYC and have summonsed numerous motorists for failure to yield right of way when merging into traffic. Like it or not, it is the law in most states.
