Alpharetta attorney Scott Miller reviews the right of way.

The phrase right of way is used to describe a vehicle driver that has the lawful authority to occupy the roadway first.
In certain conditions the right-of-way should be yielded to prevent a vehicle crash.

When traveling on a road that intersects with another road and there are no traffic control signs present, the vehicle on the left must yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.
At a four way intersection where all vehicles face traffic control signs, the first driver to arrive at the intersection has the right-of-way. If more than one vehicle arrives at the intersection at approximately the same time and speed, the vehicle on the left use the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.
When you are driving your vehicle onto a roadway from a merging lane, you must yield the right-of-way to the vehicles occupying that lane, and you must not cross the solid white line dividing the merging lane from the flow of traffic.
If you are making a right turn at a red traffic control device you must yield the right-of-way to all traffic and proceed only after coming to a complete stop.
