Which one of these two cars has to give way in the pictured intersection? If you answered the pink car, you are correct.

Why? Because the pink car is turning right across the path of the green car.

Some people may be confused by the different signs, but remember the stop sign is not more powerful than the give way sign. Both signs indicate that vehicles have to give way, the difference is that a stop sign requires you to stop first before giving way.

As the two cars arrive at their respective stops, the stop sign becomes like a give way sign.

Both cars have to give way to other vehicles on the road, and then give way to each other at the intersection by following give way rules.
