13.2. It is forbidden to go to the crossroad or intersection of the road, if there is a jam, which will force the driver to stop, creating an obstacle for movement of vehicles in the perpendicular direction.

13.3. The intersection where the priority of movement is determined by the traffic signals or traffic controller, is considered to be regulated.

The yellow flashing signal, the non-working lights or the absence of the traffic controller on the intersection is considered to be unregulated, and the drivers are obliged to follow the rules of passage of uncontrolled intersections and installed signs of priority on the crossroads.
