Flashing Yellow Arrows

Flashing Yellow Arrow
Drivers are allowed to turn left after yielding to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. (Oncoming traffic has a green light.) Drivers must determine if there is an adequate gap before turning! When in doubt, wait!

Why Have These? 
Safety-Studies show that flashing yellow arrows actually improve safety at an intersection. It's all about efficiency; the arrow allows more vehicles to make left turns and reduces the overall number of vehicles that queue in left turn lanes.
