It’s the right way


To the Editor:

Navigating downtown’s new stop signs is easy when you remember RIGHT of way.

The vehicle on the right at any stop sign has the RIGHT of way.

The first vehicle at stop signs has the right of way, then the car to its right, and so on.

Highway rules began with the navigational rules of our first transportation modes: creeks, rivers, sounds and oceans.

The last navigational rule of the road also applies to our highways: drivers shall do everything possible to avoid a collision, including yielding the right of way. Don’t let being right result in a crash.

Be courteous, be smart, so everyone gets through the stop sign quickly and safely.

RIGHT of way. It’s easy.
