Traffic lights manage the circulation of vehicles and pedestrians to enhance security and access to roadways. You need to drive at a speed that gives you time to respond if the traffic lights change.

If you go through a yellow or red traffic control, you might get an infringement notice. The notice might either be from a law enforcement officer or arrive in the mail for a camera-detected offence.

You might drive through a flashing yellow light or arrow with caution. You require to apply the pave the way rules to avoid colliding with other automobiles.

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

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

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

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 continue through the yellow light.

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

Example of green traffic light or arrow– the thumbs-up is brightened in the bottom left, with the green arrow lit up in the bottom right

If you remain in a bus lane driving a bus, taxi, limousine, or riding a bicycle, you might drive/ride past the white B light.

If the light is green and there are cars approaching from the opposite instructions, you can move on into the crossway past the stop line if you can do so securely.

If there is a safe space in approaching traffic, you might finish the best turn. If you're in the intersection and the approaching traffic continues up until the lights turn yellow or red, you must finish the turn on the yellow or red light.

You can just make a U-turn at traffic lights when there is a U-turn permitted indication. When you are doing a U-turn, you need to offer way to all other automobiles and pedestrians– even if other vehicles are dealing with an offer method or stop sign.

At intersections without traffic lights or at breaks in the centre island of the road, you need to not do a U-turn if there is a no U-turn sign.

You should likewise refrain from doing a U-turn:

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

To securely make a U-turn, you must:

- have a clear view of approaching traffic - finish the turn without obstructing the complimentary motion of traffic - provide way to all automobiles and pedestrians.

You must not take a trip in a lane marked with an illuminated red diagonal cross or pass a traffic sign above a lane displaying a red diagonal cross.

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

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

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

These consist of lights controlling junctions and pedestrian crossings.

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

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

A thumbs-up implies you may go on if the method is clear. Take unique care if you plan to turn left or ideal and give way to pedestrians who are crossing. A thumbs-up is not a right-of-way, it is a licence to proceed with caution.


A thumbs-up is not an access, it is a licence to continue with care.

An amber light suggests that you must not go beyond the stop line or, if there is no stop line, beyond the light. Nevertheless, you might go on if you are so close to the line or the light when the amber light first appears that stopping would be unsafe.

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

If you wish to turn right at a set of traffic lights that has an arrow to the right, drive into the junction when you see a thumbs-up, taking care not to obstruct any oncoming traffic. Then, when it is safe, complete your turn. You must just wait for the filter arrow for turning right when you are in the junction and if it would be hazardous to complete your turn before the filter light appears.

A flashing amber arrow pointing left can appear at a junction with another roadway. It means that you may carry on past the traffic control, however just if you first give method to traffic already coming through the junction on the other road. image reveals a flashing amber light.

Remember that a flashing amber light at a pelican crossing methods you must accept pedestrians. See pedestrian lights in the Guidelines for pedestrians section.


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

A traffic signal revealing a figure of a bicyclist means that the cyclist must stop at the traffic light.

A green light revealing a figure of a bicyclist means the bicyclist might move beyond the light as long as this does not put other roadway users in danger.

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


Cyclists - you should comply with the traffic control and may just proceed past a green car park traffic lights systems control if it is safe to do so.
