Boulevard rule. "Boulevard rule" commands that a driver upon approaching a "through highway" from an unfavored road must stop and yield right-of-way to all traffic already in or which may enter the intersection during the entire time the unfavored driver encroaches upon the right-of-way and that duty continues as long as he is in the intersection and until he becomes a part of the flow of favored travellers or successfully traverses the boulevard.
