Flashing Left-Turn Yellow Arrows

The flashing yellow arrow replaces the circular green indication as a signal that requires a yielding left turn. The flashing left-turn yellow arrows mean left turns are permitted, but you must first yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians and then proceed with caution.When drivers approach an intersection with flashing yellow arrows they should stop at that intersection and yield to oncoming traffic. If and when it is safe, drivers can proceed through the intersection. At some point the flashing yellow arrows will become a solid yellow left-turn arrow. The solid yellow means the left turn signal is about to go to red and they should prepare to stop.Drivers should always remember: a flashing yellow = yield then turn with caution.Traffic and Transportation will be installing these signals where appropriate as it continues to upgrade its traffic signals across the City . These signals will not replace the intersections that have protected-only left turn (green arrows) installed.
