Let’s use this winter to try something new — something that could make all of us happier by getting our streets cleared sooner, providing safer streets for driving and walking and allowing our police and fire staff the access they need to protect us and our homes.

I have been trying to find out what the traffic laws are regarding the right of way in residential uncontrolled intersections. I have seen so many people driving so fast through these intersections, not even slowing down, not looking and assuming that because there are no signs that they have the right of way. I was taught that if you arrived at an uncontrolled intersection before another vehicle, that you have the right of way, even if you are making a turn. I have been honked at by cars that were a half a block away when I was turning right, and they came up behind me after my turn, having to apply their brakes because they were going 40 mph and then honking as though they had the right of way. What are the specific laws here?
