Texas Transportation Code
Sec. § 545.153
Vehicle Entering Stop or Yield Intersection


(a)

Preferential right-of-way at an intersection may be indicated by a stop sign or yield sign as authorized in Section 544.003 (Authority to Designate Through Highway and Stop and Yield Intersections).

(b)

Unless directed to proceed by a police officer or official traffic-control device, an operator approaching an intersection on a roadway controlled by a stop sign, after stopping as required by Section 544.010 (Stop Signs and Yield Signs), shall yield the right-of-way to a vehicle that has entered the intersection from another highway or that is approaching so closely as to be an immediate hazard to the operators movement in or across the intersection.

(c)

An operator approaching an intersection on a roadway controlled by a yield sign shall:

(1)

slow to a speed that is reasonable under the existing conditions; and

(2)

yield the right-of-way to a vehicle in the intersection or approaching on another highway so closely as to be an immediate hazard to the operators movement in or across the intersection.

(d)

If an operator is required by Subsection (c) to yield and is involved in a collision with a vehicle in an intersection after the operator drove past a yield sign without stopping, the collision is prima facie evidence that the operator failed to yield the right-of-way.
