Can you pass this online road test driving Aussies crazy?

Can you pass this online road test driving Aussies crazy?

An online road test has confused many drivers, with users strongly disagreeing over the correct answer.

The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) posted a picture to its Facebook page showing four cars on a section of road.

They then asked users: “In which order should these cars go?”

The image shows a blue, yellow, red and orange car with arrows indicating the direction each vehicle wants to go.

Do you know the correct order these cars should go?

At a first glance, it looks like a regular T-intersection, however, the road markings reveal that it is a bit different.

Many social media viewers were insistent that the blue car should go first, followed by the yellow car, red and then orange.

“Blue, yellow then red. If you’re travelling on a road that ends in a T intersection, and you are making a turn, you must give way to all traffic that is travelling ‘through’ on the road,” one Facebook user said.

But there were many who disagreed with this opinion.

One user wrote: “Yellow they cross no lines, then blue because red and orange have a give way sign.”

Another added: “Anyone who said blue first, please hand your licence in. Crashes happen because of people like you!”

Others didn’t agree with either response with one person saying the correct order would be “blue, red, orange and then yellow”.

ANSWER

After a few hours of motorists disagreeing on the correct order, the RACQ revealed the answer: Yellow, blue, red and then orange.

“The give way sign at this intersection makes the path the yellow vehicle is on the continuing road, which curves to the right,” they explained.

“The red and orange vehicles are facing a give way sign and must give way to all other traffic.

“Therefore the yellow vehicle goes first, the blue vehicle goes second as it is effectively turning right off the continuing road and the red and orange vehicles follow.”
