My whole driving/commuting life has included one simple fact. People making left turns at 4-way intersections must yield to oncoming traffic. At this specific intersection this is no longer a fact. Actually, believing such a thing could get you seriously injured (and late for work). It seems, every day, when I try to go straight through this intersection and the opposing traffic has a left turn blinker on, I get horns blaring at me because I have the audacity to be of the mindset that people making left turns are to yield to oncoming traffic. Various driving education courses and manuals must also have incorrectly printed the same rules. The authors should have checked with the drivers on my daily commute first.

So, when did the rules change, and why didn't anyone tell me?

Okay Sacramento drivers, this is how you do it: Obviously, if two cars reach the intersection at the same time, in perpendicular lanes (i.e. North & West), the one on the right goes first. That's not the issue. What people have forgotten, or people fail to learn, is that if two cars reach a 4-way controlled intersection at the same time, in opposing lanes, and one person is making a left turn, that person must yield to the one going straight. If both are turning, it's not an issue.

There is no gray area. No wiggle room. No. This is in the vehicle code & the driver handbook. And these idiots are pissing me off!!
