VicRoads common road rules It's important that drivers, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians understand their responsibilities as road users. Knowing and applying the road rules will help keep you safe on Victoria's roads. Melbourne is home to some unique traffic situations, such as hook turns and sharing the road with trams. These situations can often be stressful or confusing for motorists that are unclear or unfamiliar with different traffic conditions. VicRoads has produced eight short videos to help motorists become familiar and comfortable with common road rules. Video Transcript: VO: These videos will take you through some common road rules that you need to know. VO: Giving way at intersections VO: It is important to know what to do at an intersection. VO: If you see a 'STOP' sign, or are faced with a stopped line, you must come to a complete stop at the intersection. VO: After stopping, you must give way to any vehicle in, entering, or approaching the intersection. VO: If you see a 'GIVE WAY' sign or give way line, you must give way to any vehicle in, entering or approaching the intersection. VO: There are some exceptions to these give way rules. Here are two to remember. VO: 1. You don't have to give way if there is an oncoming vehicle turning right. The vehicle turning right must give way to you. VO: 2. You don't have to give way if there is a vehicle making a U-Turn. The vehicle making the U-Turn must give way to you. VO: Finally, at T-Intersections you must give way to vehicles travelling along the continuing road. VO: Before you get in your car and go, these are some common road rules you need to know.
