Penalties


Travelling straight ahead OR turning left in a slip lane - failing to give way to vehicles to the right or pedestrians = 3 demerit points and $200 fine.

Turning left or right - failing to give way to vehicles to the right or pedestrians = 3 demerit points and $300 fine.

An uncontrolled intersection is where there is no traffic signal, stop sign, or give way sign.

As a rule, at an uncontrolled intersection, always give way to the right, to oncoming vehicles and pedestrians. 

Specifically:

  • If going straight ahead - give way to vehicles on your right;

  • If turning left - give way to vehicles to the right and pedestrians crossing the road you're entering;

  • If turning left using a slip lane - give way to vehicles on your right and pedestrians crossing the slip lane;

  • If turning right - give way to vehicles on your right, any oncoming vehicles/bicycles who are going straight ahead or turning left, and any pedestrians crossing the road you’re entering.
