Speeding through Yield Signs
Most people know that running stop signs and red lights can be extremely dangerous and, as such, make sure to stop as they are supposed to. Regrettably, the same caution is not given to yield signs, even though speeding through a yield sign can be just as dangerous as running a red light or stop sign. Yield signs are often placed in areas where traffic will merge together and one lane of traffic is generally traveling at a faster rate than another lane of traffic. Yielding the right of way to those who have it is an essential safe driving practice, but, unfortunately, many drivers fail to do so, causing significant injury to others in car accidents as a result.

Dangers of Failure to Yield
Although most drivers are aware enough of their surroundings to prevent an accident from happening should another driver fail to yield appropriately, there are times that an accident is inevitable. When this is the case, failing to yield may cause any of the following:
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-ending another vehicle
- “T-boning” another vehicle
- Being rear-ended
- Causing a multi-car pileup
These are only some of the possible accidents that can occur when a driver fails to yield or speeds through a yield sign. When a driver causes another motorist to be injured by failing to yield the right of way, they could be responsible for the ensuing costs of the accident.
You should not have to suffer financially for the irresponsible driving behavior of others.
