This week, David C. Weigel describes the Boulevard Rule. Although this law may sound unfamiliar, it is a rule that most drivers deal with on a daily basis. This traffic law in Maryland states that any driver approaching an intersection from a smaller roadway must yield the right-of-way to the drivers on the through highway.
The driver approaching from the smaller roadway is known as the unfavored driver. The unfavored driver must yield until he/she can either cross the through highway safely or merge and get up to speed. In the personal injury context, the Boulevard Rule places a duty on the unfavored driver to avoid a collision by yielding to the favored drivers.
