You are driving the vehicle from which the pictures are taken. In what situation are you obligated to give way to traffic coming from the right?
Review of the options:
A: Correct, the right hand rule applies “when the paths of two vehicles intersect in an open area or similar location, for example, in a parking area or inside a petrol station.” (Driving Licence Book, 19th Edition, page 41)
B: Wrong, you are driving on a priority road. The Swedish Transport Agency states that a priority road sign is not located directly after a junction if the road is also not a priority road before the junction = priority road also before the junction in B.
C: Wrong, the road on the right has an obligation to stop.
Stop line (M13)
”The marking indicates where a vehicle should stop according to a road sign or traffic signal.”
It cannot be any other line than a stop line. Furthermore, a stop sign can be found further to the right in C.
Can it really be this unclear?
– Yes, the picture shows a real traffic situation that you must be able to assess in a single second. Reports from the real test indicate that unclear situations may occur.
D: Wrong, the road on the right has an obligation to give way.
