Failure to Yield
Yield signs are some of the most frequently ignored traffic signs. For example, it is more common to witness a car speed up to make it through a yellow light than it is to see one slow down. Failure to yield is not only illegal, but also a frequent cause of collisions.

Yield signs are prevalent on US roadways. Whenever entering or exiting the free way and merging into traffic, you must yield the right-of-way. Additionally, turning left on green requires drivers to yield until there is no oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, many people are unaware that they must yield when turning left.
Failure to yield frequently causes car accidents. If moving at high speeds, these accidents can be seriously damaging or fatal. When a driver fails to yield the right-of-way, they are generally liable for any damages their negligence caused.
