If such is the case, they wait until there is nothing being sent, and they start transmitting (while continuing to listen for collisions). If a collision is detected, a 'jamming' signal will be sent. A jamming signal tells every machine that there has been a collision and there should be no transmissions for now. At this time, every machine start a timer at a random value, when this timer runs out, they can start sending again. (CSMA/CD - Carrier Sense Multiple Access / Collision Detection)
