Driver Entering Favored Road From Side Road or Shoulder

The primary duty to avoid a collision rests upon the driver entering a through highway from a side road or the shoulder. However, he is not required to desist from entry so long as any traffic is in sight. He may proceed onto the main highway under circumstances when it would appear to a reasonably prudent person that his entry can be made in safety and without obstructing the passage of approaching traffic. See Zager v. Allstate Insurance Co., 211 So.2d 744 (La.App.3d Cir. 1968).
