If it is an un-controlled intersection, the vehicle to the right has the right-of-way. In North America , the vehicle approaching the intersection on the right has the right of way, Yield to the car on your right.

At the intersection of two roads where traffic in all four directions is required to stop before proceeding, when two vehicles, one on each of the two roads, arrive at the intersection at the same time, the driver on the right from the point of view of the drivers has the right to proceed first.

Traffic in the continually flowing lane (the one without any stop signs) would have right of way. I am assuming that answer was too obvious to be what the question was referring to. So since i see many people everyday that have no clue what to do in the other instance i will add it here. If you are at the stop sign and someone else is at the other stop sign, and one of you wants to make a left turn, and you both arrived at the sign at te same time, the car going straight through has the right of way, and the turning vehicle makes the turn behind the through vehicle. A problem arises because so many drivers are clueless here that they assume because the turning vehicle enters the intersection that they are usurping the right of way. Having lived in areas where the proper procedure was taught and predominately adhered to; it works like magic, if all parties are properly trained to drive.

I don't have an answer, just a question. When I was out driving in my vehicle, I came to a 4-way stop. I waited for my turn. The vehicle that had the right of way proceeded through the intersection. there was a cyclist behind the vehicle and it also proceeded through the intersection immediately after the vehicle. My question is shouldn't the cyclist waited until I went through the intersection since it was my turn? do cyclists not follow the same rules as vehicles if they are actually on the road and not in the bike lane? thanks

The vehicle on the right has the right of way unless entering the intersection at an unlawful speed

"A driver of a vehicle which is making a turn at an intersection who is facing a steady circular yellow or yellow arrow signal shall not enter the intersection or marked crosswalk unless there is sufficient space on the other side of the intersection or marked crosswalk to accommodate the vehicle driven without obstructing the through passage of vehicles from either side."

Other vehicle in intersection goes before you do

15 mph

On an open highway with no intersecting roadways, it is very illegal. You will cause an accident if the other vehicle decides to turn to the left at an intersection.

If you reach an uncontrolled intersection at close to the same time, the vehicle who actually reached the intersection last is the driver who must yield the right of way. If you reach the intersection at the same time, the driver on the left should yield the right of way.
