I stopped to yield for oncoming traffic because there were tons coming, this guy started honking at me because I stopped. I was yielding to oncoming traffic because sometimes drivers change lanes to get into the strip mall that's on the right side. I was waiting for the way to be clear so I could safely enter the road. What do you guys think should I have just went into the right lane or stop and yield to the oncoming traffic?
Yield is the only thing to deal with. You have to yield to approaching traffic in the marked lane you are entering. You do not have to yield to those vehicles in the farther lane(s).
There is a similiar situation in the city I live in, except the merge lane, actually starts the right most marked lane. Would not believe how many actually stop and do not proceed directly into the lane, makes no sense.
