Traffic tickets

failure to yield

A driver may have an obligation to yield to other traffic even when there is no yield sign in place. For example, if a driver making a left-hand turn on a green light fails to yield to oncoming traffic a police officer may issue a ticket or citation for failure to yield.

A failure to yield violation is generally punishable by a fine and points on your driver’s license.
