Letter: Yield rule unclear and it shouldn’t be

Regarding the ongoing discussion on yield signs in Georgia: When I took drivers education years ago in another state, the teaching was that when making a left turn, you always yielded to oncoming traffic, including those making right turns, unless you had a green left turn arrow. There was no split second decision making about whether opposing traffic making a right turn had a yield sign, or if they would abide by it. 

In observing a combination of standoffs where neither driver proceeds, or near misses when both decide to go, it’s apparent that many drivers were trained the same way. I’m not sure why Georgia sees a need to make this “rule of the road” overly complex and worse yet, variable from one intersection to the next.
