Traffic control manage the flow of cars and pedestrians to improve safety and access to roadways. You must drive at a speed that provides you time to react if the traffic control alter.

If you go through a yellow or red traffic signal, you may get a violation notice. The notification might either be from an authorities officer or arrive in the mail for a camera-detected offence.

You might drive through a flashing yellow light or arrow with care. You require to use the pave the way guidelines to prevent hitting other vehicles.

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

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

You must 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 beginning of the red light phase.

If it's safe to stop, you need to not drive past the stop line at the yellow traffic light 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 light 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 brightened in the bottom right

If you remain 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 on into the intersection past the stop line if you can do so securely.

If there is a safe gap in oncoming traffic, you might finish the best turn. If you're in the crossway and the oncoming traffic continues until the lights turn yellow or red, you need to finish the turn on the yellow or red light.

You can just make a U-turn at traffic control when there is a U-turn permitted sign. When you are doing a U-turn, you should give way to all other cars and pedestrians– even if other automobiles are dealing with a pave the way or stop sign.

At intersections without traffic signal 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 sign.

You must also refrain from doing a U-turn:

- throughout a single or double constant centre line - throughout a constant 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 blocking the totally 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 indication above a lane displaying a red diagonal cross.

If an illuminated 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 roadway, you can drive in a lane if there's a:

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

These consist of lights controlling junctions and pedestrian crossings.

parking lot traffic light systems control are three lights vertically stacked, red at top, amber in middle, and green at bottom. In addition 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 need to not go beyond the stop line at that light or, if there is no stop line, beyond the light.

A thumbs-up implies you might go on if the method 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 a right of way, it is a licence to proceed with caution.


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

An amber light indicates that you must not surpass the stop line or, if there is no stop line, beyond the light. However, 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) means that you might move on in the instructions of the arrow, assuming it is safe and the method is clear, even if a traffic signal is likewise 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 block any oncoming 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 dangerous 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 move on past the traffic light, but just if you initially provide 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 ways you should accept pedestrians. See pedestrian lights in the Guidelines for pedestrians area.


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

A red light revealing a figure of a bicyclist suggests that the bicyclist should stop at the traffic light.

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

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


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