Traffic Signals • Red Light • A motorist must stop before the intersection or crosswalk and remain stopped until the light changes to green • Yellow Light • A motorist should stop before entering an intersection, unless the vehicle is so close to the intersection that they cannot stop • Green Light • A motorist should proceed through the intersection. Yield to pedestrians and other vehicles still in the intersection. Before turning through an intersection yield to other vehicles

Traffic Signals • Green Arrow • When shown proceed only as shown by the arrow, however yield to pedestrians and be cautious • Flashing Yellow Light • Slow down and proceed with caution • Flashing Red Light • Stop, yield to pedestrians and traffic, go when safe • Unlit Signal • If no one is directing traffic the light is now considered a four way stop sign. Follow those rules
