What Is Failure To Yield?
If a driver fails to yield, it means that they did not properly stop at a stop sign or yield at a yield sign. If a driver fails to do so, they could possibly cause an accident by hitting other vehicles that have the right of way.
A failure to yield accident can potentially cause very serious injuries. If it occurs at an intersection in which the driver with the right of way is traveling at a rather high rate of speed, the injuries can become very serious, if not fatal. If it is an accident in a neighborhood in which the speed limit is slower, there is still a potential for serious injuries, but they probably won’t be as serious as if the speed limit is higher (i.e. 40 mph).
