Traffic lights manage the flow of vehicles and pedestrians to enhance security and access to roads. You need to drive at a speed that offers you time to react if the traffic control change.

dmoz.orgIf you go through a yellow or red traffic signal, you might get an infringement notice. The notification 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 have to apply the pave the way guidelines to prevent colliding with other vehicles.

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

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

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

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

If it's hazardous to stop– such as being close to the light when it alters from green to yellow– you may 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 parking lot traffic signalling systems signal or arrow– the thumbs-up is lit up 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 bike, you may drive/ride past the white B light.

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

If there is a safe space in oncoming traffic, you may finish the best turn. If you remain in the intersection and the approaching traffic continues until the lights turn yellow or red, you must complete the turn on the yellow or red light.

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

At crossways without traffic signal or at breaks in the centre island of the roadway, you need to refrain from doing 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 constant centre line to the left of a broken 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 - complete the turn without blocking the free movement of traffic - pave the way to all cars and pedestrians.

You must not travel in a lane marked with a lit up red diagonal cross or pass a traffic sign above a lane displaying a red diagonal cross.

If an illuminated red diagonal cross is flashing above your lane, you should 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 certain instructions– above the lane - speed limitation indication above the lane.

These consist of lights managing junctions and pedestrian crossings.

Traffic lights 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 indicates 'stop'. If the light is red as you approach it, you should not go beyond 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 way is clear. Take special care if you intend to turn left or ideal and pave the way to pedestrians who are crossing. A thumbs-up is not a right of way, it is a licence to continue with caution.


A green light is not an access, it is a licence to proceed with care.

An amber light suggests that you need to not surpass the stop line or, if there is no stop line, beyond the light. However, you may 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 understood as a filter light) implies that you might move on in the instructions of the arrow, presuming it is safe and the method is clear, even if a red light is also revealing.

If you wish to turn right at a set of traffic signal that has an arrow to the right, drive into the junction when you see a thumbs-up, making sure not to obstruct any approaching traffic. Then, when it is safe, complete your turn. You need to only wait for the filter arrow for turning right when you remain in the junction and if it would be unsafe to finish your turn before the filter light appears.

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

Keep in mind that a flashing amber light at a pelican crossing means you need to yield to pedestrians. See pedestrian lights in the Guidelines for pedestrians section.


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

A red light revealing a figure of a cyclist suggests that the bicyclist needs to stop at the traffic light.

A thumbs-up revealing a figure of a cyclist means the cyclist might 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 cyclist may not cross the road unless they had started crossing when there was a steady green light showing a figure of a cyclist.


Cyclists - you need to follow the traffic control and may just continue past a green traffic light if it is safe to do so.
