Turkish Traffic law - primary roads
Dear Sir, Madam,
We are confronted with an accident of one of our insured members. He claims that in Turkey traffic on primary roads has right of way. Is this true? And if it's true, can you refer to a specific article of the Turkish traffic law?
Furthermore, can you explain how it's possible if the primary road has right of way that the police rapported that our insured was liable for the accident, tough he was driving on the main road and this was clear to all the parties involved?
Thank you in advance for your trouble.

Thank you for your reply on such short notice.
Our insured was driving on a primary road, passing a small village every now and then. In one of those villages he passed an intersection when a car coming from the right crashed into our insured. The car from the right claims priority stating that when there are no signs, traffic from the right has right of way (=priority). Our insured states that in Turkey traffic that comes from secundairy roads that lead to a residential area has to give priority to traffic following primary roads, even tough there are no signs. In short, a big street beats a small street.
Our insured also states that a week later another accident took place on the same intersection, and that the police found the car coming from the right liable for that accident.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
According to your explanation it seems to me that your insured member is right. Normally in Turkey, cars on the primary roads has right of way, especially if there is no traffic lights and signs.
However, if you could fax the report to me, I can give you more certain answer?
