Understanding yield signs is driver’s education 101 and extremely simple. Yield simply means you have to allow all oncoming traffic from any or all directions to pass before you can proceed. Unlike stop signs, full stops aren’t required. 

Stop signs are more present at four-way intersections because rolling stops aren’t safe for them. Yield signs are frequent on expressways before merging or before entering a roundabout. 

Because full stops aren’t required, accidents are more likely to occur at sites with yield signs rather than stop signs.
