depends what car you are driving

for example a ferrari will have right of way on all four sides compared to a nissan micra

hope that helps

Depending on the markings, you should give way to the right. As on a roundabout.

It actually goes bus, hgv, smaller truck, white van, van of any other colour, car, motorbike, bicycle pedestrian in that order.

Actually there is a pecking order

0 - Push bike
1 - 40 Wheelers
2 - White van man
3 - Salesman ( Usually 3 series BMW/Mondeo/c-class mercedes)
4 - Teh Ferrari etc

if they're bigger than you......................

well i was aproaching the cross road and checked to my right then back to my left i was slightly over the road markings and noticed a man in another car coming from my left so i stopped and hand signalled for him to carry on only for him to tell me to watch where i was going ? its hard to see at this junction with out going just over the line. i usaualy use this junction once a day and 9 out of 10 times i give way to every body it just felt like i cant bloody win lol perhaps i should of kept going :oops:

The signs or road markings should definitely show who has right of way....if they didnt there would be a terrible accident.
Funnily enough when we go to Florida there are many cross roads which dont have markings and its generally rule of thumb is if you got there first you go. when all four roads are busy though it can be a bit hair raising but i found everyone was really well behaved and polite. I think they are so scared of being sued that everyone behaves themselves. No way would that work over here though.

There is always someone who will complain no matter what. Forget them.

as you say you went over the line i assume the road you were comng from is meant to give way to the traffic on the road crossing it. A car coming from your left though should be on the other side of the road anyway even if you pulled out slightly (or the road is only wide enough for one car).
If there are no road marking or signs then as already said you should give way to the right (your right of way in that situation)

im learning to drive n know who gets right of way at junctions but it ****** me off when people wave me out when they have right of way :x

He was quite correct to give you a b0llocking as you technically came through a give-way

the only markings there are are broken white lines going a cross the top of the road my problem is i stopped to let him carry on its not like he had to brake to avoid me or drive round me i only went slightly over the junction as i couldnt see to my left if any thing was coming

I always go via the principle that whoever got there first gets right of way, unless they're an old codger who looks like they'll take half an hour to get it in 1st gear or a 5 foot woman in a 4x4 who can barely see over the wheel.
