Approaching intersections safely

Intersections can be tricky, with many vehicles, riders and pedestrians all travelling in different directions.

We’ve summarised the top rules you should know so you can approach and cross an intersection or roundabout safely.

The summaries RACV provide on Victorian road rules are based on the Victorian Road Safety Road Rules 2017. We make sure to reference the exact rule where possible. When reading, keep in mind that we’re providing general information, not legal advice. If you’re looking for specific questions on any legal matter, consult with a lawyer for help.
