    So why did you ask? And as we drive on the left, giving way to the right would be ridiculous.

    The UK has not signed up to the Vienna convention at all and in any case I'm not aware that it makes any stipulation as to unmarked junctions. Road signs yes......

    All answers are right...
    Even with 'priority' it still pays to be careful! Being 'right' doesn't stop crashes.

    Probably seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Nor does being 'left'.

    As I quoted on Val's previous thread, the convention says*
    Contracting Parties or sub-divisions thereof in whose territories traffic keeps to the left shall be free to regulate the right of way at intersections as they see fit.
    Therefore even if we'd ratified their treaty, as far as the UN are concerned regarding traffic priorities, our government could have let us do whatever we like, and still comply with their convention.

    *yes, I have read it.
