Traffic control manage the circulation of cars and pedestrians to improve safety and access to roads. You should drive at a speed that gives you time to react if the traffic control alter.

If you go through a yellow or red traffic control, you may receive an infringement notification. The notification might either be from a policeman or arrive in the mail for a camera-detected offence.

You might drive through a flashing yellow light or arrow with care. You have to apply the pave the way rules to avoid hitting other cars.

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

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

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

If it's safe to stop, you should not drive past the stop line at the yellow traffic signal 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 signal or arrow, as long as the intersection is clear.

Example of green traffic control or arrow– the green light is lit up in the bottom left, with the green arrow lit up 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 cars approaching from the opposite direction, you can progress into the intersection past the stop line if you can do so securely.

If there is a safe gap in approaching traffic, you may finish the right turn. If you're in the crossway and the oncoming traffic continues up until the lights turn yellow or red, you need to complete the turn on the yellow or traffic signal.

You can just make a U-turn at traffic signal when there is a U-turn permitted sign. When you are doing a U-turn, you should pave the way to all other automobiles and pedestrians– even if other automobiles are facing an offer method or stop sign.

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

You should also not do a U-turn:

- throughout a single or double constant centre line - across 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 need to:

- have a clear view of approaching traffic - finish the turn without blocking the totally free motion of traffic - give way to all vehicles and pedestrians.

You should not travel 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 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 specific direction– above the lane - speed limitation indication above the lane.

These include lights managing junctions and pedestrian crossings.

Traffic signal are 3 lights vertically stacked, red at top, amber in middle, and green at bottom. Furthermore a filter arrow might accompany at the bottom, at either side.

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

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


A green light is not a right-of-way, it is a licence to proceed with caution.

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

A green arrow (also referred to as a filter light) suggests that you may proceed in the instructions of the arrow, assuming it is safe and the way is clear, even if a traffic signal is likewise revealing.

If you want to turn right at a set of traffic lights that has an arrow to the right, drive into the junction when you see a green light, making sure not to block any oncoming traffic. Then, when it is safe, complete your turn. You need to just wait for the filter arrow for turning right when you remain 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 road. It means that you may move on past the traffic light, but just if you first provide way to traffic already coming through the junction on the other roadway. image shows a flashing amber light.

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


You should constantly approach parking lot traffic signalling systems lights at a speed that will allow you to stop if the amber light appears.

A traffic signal showing a figure of a cyclist indicates that the bicyclist needs to stop at the traffic signal.

A green light revealing a figure of a bicyclist indicates the cyclist may move beyond the light as long as this does not put other roadway users in risk.

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


Bicyclists - you must obey the traffic signal and may only continue past a green traffic signal if it is safe to do so.
