    Car 2 waits for the oncomming traffic as they (car 2) have a stop sign.

    Car 1 has been stopped at the stop sign and waiting on car 2 and the oncomming traffic.

    Traffic finally clears and car 2 turns west (or right if your driving) as they have the right of way.

    Car one has been stopped at the stop sign to also turn west.

    Car 3 procedes to pull up to the stop sign aslo wanting to head west.

    Who has the right of way, Car 1 or Car 3.

    Car 3 has not yet stopped at the stop sign let alone pull up to the intersection.

    Car 1 has been waiting at the stop sign for car 2 to turn.

    Hope directions are clear enough.

    What say you?

    Since they both have stop signs the car that's been waiting the longest should go next, then car #3.

    id say turning right has the right-of-way over on coming traffic turning left......unless there is more to the story.

    because, if the "turning right" vehicle just had their signal on and went straght and was struck or struck "turning left" vehicle, the turning left vehcile would be at fault.

    One would think that it would be car #1.

    Seems like if car 3 has NOT stopped at the stop sign yet - and I will assume car 1 has started moving before car 3 stops - then car 1 has the right of way.

    My guess is that car 3 did not even come to a complete stop (just slowed down) - and just PULLED right out in front of car 1.

    Around my parts, the right turn-er would go first. I would be 2,1,3. I believe the correct answer is 1,2,...3 though. If all at stop signs, it is first come, first serve.

    Technically, car 3 should yield to car 1. In reality, car 1 should only go once he's sure it's safe and car 3 is pretty likely to not yield as he should (I have this exact scenario every evening leaving work and 'car 3' rarely yields).

    Exactly what happened. But I put the petal to the metal in the old 350 suburban and prevented an accident.

    Got to thinking if I was in the right or wrong. Nothing I hate more then careless drivers that are ignorant to the law.

    I was hoping I wasnt one of them..................

    What makes it even more fun is when there are two lanes in every direction. And then car 2 goes, car 1 starts, and car 3 runs the stop and then proceeds directly to the inside lane and cuts off car 1.

    If Car 3 has no stopped before Car 1 begins pulling into the intersection the order is as follows... 2,1,3

    If Car 3 has stopped before Car 1 begins to move the order is as follows... 2,3,1

    First in, first out.

    Unless the right hand turn has an opening on their side of the road and the left hand turn does not. No reason for the right turning car to wait on the left turning car if they have an opening and the other does not.

    Private property like a Walmart parking lot is No guts, No glory or Proceed with caution. Driving is a contact sport in Mexico

    Depends on your State. In Texas, no one (except a Train) has the "right of way" the law creates a duty to "yield the right of way."

    What that means is, neither car has the right of way because again, no car in Texas has a right of way. The law says, you can not make a turn until it is safe to do so. So if car number three begins to turn, it would not be safe for number 1 to do so, and if car number 1 began to turn it would not be safe for number 3 to do so.
