The Flashing Yellow Arrow is Coming to Alabama
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.
