Safe Guidelines For Driving In The Lane or Back Ally
Unless posted, the speed limit here is maximum 20 km/hr.
Entrances to lanes, parking lots, and driveways are legally treated much more like a private driveway than an intersection. This means drivers exiting the lane are required to completely stop their vehicle before the side-walk (or before the edge of the road, whichever comes first) and yield to pedestrians and traffic before proceeding. Treat as though you are facing a stop sign.
Common hazards include blind areas, vehicles reversing from driveways, children, and animals.
