Highlights: Two drivers want to turn onto a multi-lane road: Are they allowed to drive at the same time?. It can be no less complicated when three vehicles are parked at an intersection without signs. And even at intersections with a bending right of way and traffic lights, many drivers puzzle over who gets to drive first. Anyone who drives tyres with the M+S symbol risks a fine from 2024 according to the ADAC, Germany's road safety watchdog. The rules are clear: The person turning right generally has priority.

Turning in traffic can lead to uncertainty. For example, when two cars want to turn onto a multi-lane road at the same time. The rules are clear.

If you want to drive a car, you first have to go to school at the driving school and get your driver's license. But the rag is becoming more and more expensive. There you learn everything you need to know to be able to move safely in traffic. However, much of what you have learned in driving school is forgotten afterwards. When turning, for example, there is often uncertainty.

This is especially the case when two cars want to turn onto a road with several lanes at the same time. It gets even more complicated when both want to turn onto the one two-lane road, but are coming from different directions.

Turning onto a two-lane road: Who has the right of way?

In this situation, the following question arises: Are the two cars allowed to turn at the same time or does one have to give way to the other? This is a legitimate question, because since there are two lanes, it would be quite possible to turn at the same time. But it is not allowed.

"The vehicle turning right always has the right of way. The driver is allowed to drive first and thus freely choose one of the two lanes. The person turning left has to wait for this process and is only then allowed to continue," explains the ADAC in a quiz on its homepage. In fact, the person turning right generally has priority.

It's not just turning that is complicated: right of way leaves drivers guessing

However, there are other situations in which motorists start to wonder. For example, when four vehicles arrive at an intersection at the same time without traffic lights or signs? How do you regulate the right of way in this case?
