Right-a-Way at an Uncontrolled Intersection

At an uncontrolled intersection, who has the right-a-way? Washington Rules of the Road state that the vehicle who came to the intersection first has the right-a-way. If both vehicles came to a stop at the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the left must allow the vehicle on the right to go first.

Car Accidents at Uncontrolled Intersection

Failure to yield the right-a-way at an uncontrolled intersection could lead to a serious car accident.  In the United States, 40 percent of all car accidents occur at an intersection as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This is the second largest category of accidents after rear-end collisions. To avoid a car accident in an intersection you should look out for other approaching vehicles that may be speeding or inattentive.  These vehicles pose a hazard to you and other drivers.

The Washington Rule of the Road governing Vehicles Approaching an Intersection is as follows:

RCW 46.61.180: Vehicle approaching intersection.

  1. When two vehicles approach or enter an intersection from different highways at approximately the same time, the driver of the vehicle on the left shall yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.
  2. The right-of-way rule declared in subsection (1) of this section is modified at arterial highways and otherwise as stated in this chapter.
