Virginia Beach Reckless Driving Attorney: § 46.2-863. Failure to yield right-of-way.

A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who fails to bring his vehicle to a stop immediately before entering a highway from a side road when there is traffic approaching on such highway within 500 feet of such point of entrance, unless (i) a "Yield Right-of-Way" sign is posted or (ii) where such sign is posted, fails, upon entering such highway, to yield the right-of-way to the driver of a vehicle approaching on such highway from either direction.

THIS SECTION DOES NOT CREATE RIGHT-OF-WAY. –A right-of-way exists only if expressly created by statute. This section does not create a right-of-way in favor of a driver approaching upon a highway unless a "Yield Right-of-Way" sign is posted. Perkins v. Carr, 227 Va. 16, 313 S.E.2d 372 (1984).
