Bottom line, if oncoming traffic should yield, there should be a yield sign to say so, since there is not, its all for one self. Just go damit, dont sit there and wait. If an out of towner cant see the direction of the traffic, maybe they shouldnt be driving!
Hmm

Yep. Next time you get onto the highway check out the sign at the bottom of the on ramp. It's a yield sign. Let's make it easier. Pull onto the square and hit a car. The ticket will help clear up any misconceptions.
that would be the interstate not a highway.

From the IL Secretary of State Rules of the Road.
Yield right-of-way:
to through traffic when approaching a MERGE sign. You must increase or decrease speed to avoid an accident.
No sign, yield to cross traffic when on the terminating highway of a “T" intersection (which would be the square) with no traffic control signs or signals.

Right-of-way is something that is given to others on the roadway. Give another driver who is not following the rules of the road the right-of-way in order to avoid an accident. You should always drive defensively

Sounds to me like a few of you need to take drivers ed once again. As a few have stated, people on the square have the right a way and no they do not have to let others in. That's what my son was taught in drivers ed a year ago.

Cars coming onto the square have right of way - it's like that with every unlabeled square around. We were also taught that in driver's ed way back in high school - not even from benton but drivers ed took us through the square to teach us how to drive in squares. lived there for a while and everyone there knows its the traffic coming onto the square that doesn't stop, but its fun to see peoples faces from out of town when you dont stop. Even better, the people who put on their blinkers to merge onto the square...

You need to read your Rules of the Road again.....you've been operating under a false assumption.

Plow into one of the cars already on the square and see who gets the ticket.....

All I can say is that it is a Mess that should be avoided at all costs. Take the side streets with their nifty red signs and there is no confusion.
