Traffic signal manage the circulation of automobiles and pedestrians to improve safety and access to roadways. You must drive at a speed that gives you time to react if the traffic signal change.

If you go through a yellow or red traffic signal, you may receive a violation notice. The notice could either be from a law enforcement officer or arrive in the mail for a camera-detected offence.

You may drive through a flashing yellow light or arrow with caution. You have to apply the pave the way guidelines to prevent colliding with other cars.

You should not drive past the stop line on the road at a red traffic light or, if there is no stop line, the traffic signal.

You must not drive in the instructions of the red traffic arrow past the stop line at the traffic signal or, if there is no stop line, the traffic signal.

You should stop on a yellow light, unless it is risky to do so. The yellow light is not completion of the green light stage– it is the start of the red light phase.

If it's safe to stop, you should not drive past the stop line at the yellow traffic control or, if there is no stop line, the traffic control.

If it's risky to stop– such as being close to the light when it changes from green to yellow– you might proceed through the yellow light.

You can drive past the green traffic control or arrow, as long as the intersection is clear.

Example of green car park traffic signalling systems signal or arrow– the thumbs-up is brightened in the bottom left, with the green arrow illuminated in the bottom right

If you're in a bus lane driving a bus, taxi, limo, or riding a bicycle, you may drive/ride past the white B light.

If the light is green and there are automobiles approaching from the opposite direction, you can move forward into the intersection past the stop line if you can do so safely.

If there is a safe gap in approaching traffic, you may finish the right turn. If you remain in the intersection and the approaching traffic continues until the lights turn yellow or red, you should finish the turn on the yellow or traffic signal.

You can only make a U-turn at traffic lights when there is a U-turn permitted sign. When you are doing a U-turn, you must provide method to all other cars and pedestrians– even if other automobiles are facing a pave the way or stop sign.

At intersections without traffic signal or at breaks in the centre island of the road, you should refrain from doing a U-turn if there is a no U-turn indication.

You should likewise refrain from doing a U-turn:

- across a single or double constant centre line - throughout a continuous centre line to the left of a damaged line - over a painted island in the centre of the roadway.

To safely make a U-turn, you should:

- have a clear view of approaching traffic - finish the turn without obstructing the free movement of traffic - pave the way to all automobiles and pedestrians.

You need to not travel in a lane marked with a lit up red diagonal cross or pass a traffic sign above a lane showing a red diagonal cross.

If a lit up red diagonal cross is flashing above your lane, you need to leave the lane as soon as it's safe to do so.

If there is an overhead lane control gadget above the roadway, you can drive in a lane if there's a:

- white, green or yellow arrow pointing downwards– or in a certain direction– above the lane - speed limit sign above the lane.

These consist of lights managing junctions and pedestrian crossings.

Traffic control are three lights vertically stacked, red at top, amber in middle, and green at bottom. In addition a filter arrow might accompany at the bottom, at either side.

A red light suggests 'stop'. If the light is red as you approach it, you must not surpass the stop line at that light or, if there is no stop line, beyond the light.

A thumbs-up suggests you may go on if the method is clear. Take special care if you mean to turn left or ideal and pave the way to pedestrians who are crossing. A green light is not a right-of-way, it is a licence to continue with caution.


A thumbs-up is not a right of method, it is a licence to proceed with care.

An amber light means that you must not exceed the stop line or, if there is no stop line, beyond the light. Nevertheless, you might go on if you are so near the line or the light when the amber light initially appears that stopping would be unsafe.

A green arrow (also called a filter light) suggests that you may move on in the instructions of the arrow, presuming it is safe and the method is clear, even if a traffic signal is likewise showing.

If you wish to turn right at a set of traffic control that has an arrow to the right, drive into the junction when you see a green light, taking care not to obstruct any oncoming traffic. Then, when it is safe, finish your turn. You need to only await the filter arrow for turning right when you are in the junction and if it would be unsafe to finish your turn prior to the filter light appears.

A flashing amber arrow pointing left can appear at a junction with another road. It suggests that you may carry on past the traffic signal, but only if you initially pave the way to traffic already coming through the junction on the other roadway. image reveals a flashing amber light.

Remember that a flashing amber light at a pelican crossing means you should accept pedestrians. See pedestrian lights in the Guidelines for pedestrians area.


You need to always approach traffic control at a speed that will allow you to stop if the amber light appears.

A red light showing a figure of a cyclist means that the bicyclist should stop at the traffic light.

A thumbs-up showing a figure of a cyclist means the bicyclist may move beyond the light as long as this does not put other road users in danger.

A flashing thumbs-up or an amber light revealing a figure of a cyclist suggests the bicyclist may not cross the roadway unless they had begun crossing when there was a constant thumbs-up revealing a figure of a bicyclist.


Cyclists - you must obey the traffic lights and may only proceed past a green traffic control if it is safe to do so.
