Flashing Yellow Arrow
The new flashing yellow arrow means turns are permitted, BUT you must first yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians, then turn with caution. A flashing yellow arrow signal offers a safer, more efficient way to handle traffic turning left at busy intersections.
It’s Safer: Research shows drivers make fewer mistakes with the new signals than with traditional left-turn arrow signals.
It’s More Efficient: The new signals provide engineers with more options to handle variable traffic volumes.
It’s More Consistent: You’ll soon see the new signal in Alabama and throughout the United States.
