At “T” intersections without “STOP” or “YIELD” signs, yield to traffic and pedestrians on the through road. They have the right-of-way.The DMV handbook also points out that there may even be some full 4-way intersections without any stop or yield signs. If that happens, the first vehicle into the intersection has the right of way. If two vehicles arrive at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right of way, similar to how drivers would navigate a 4-way stop sign. See the full DMV Right of Way Rules of the Road here. Regardless of whether there are any traffic control devices at a T intersection, if you are approaching the intersection from the non-through road it is important to slow down and survey your surroundings. You are being forced to turn and should evaluate the roads for any other vehicle traffic or pedestrians before proceeding. This is especially important if you do not have a stop sign. It is also important to note that even if you were on the through road, it is important to drive carefully, especially in residential neighborhoods.
