globalindustrial.comTraffic control control the circulation of automobiles and pedestrians to enhance safety and access to roads. You must drive at a speed that gives you time to respond if the traffic control change.

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

You might drive through a flashing yellow light or arrow with caution. You need to use the pave the way guidelines to avoid colliding with other vehicles.

You must 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 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 control.

You must 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 must not drive past the stop line at the yellow traffic control or, if there is no stop line, the car park traffic control systems control.

If it's risky to stop– such as being close to the light when it alters 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 traffic control or arrow– the green light is brightened in the bottom left, with the green arrow brightened in the bottom right

If you remain in a bus lane driving a bus, taxi, limousine, 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 move on 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 ideal turn. If you remain in the crossway and the oncoming traffic continues until the lights turn yellow or red, you should complete the turn on the yellow or traffic signal.

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

At intersections without traffic control or at breaks in the centre island of the road, you must not do a U-turn if there is a no U-turn indication.

You must likewise refrain from doing a U-turn:

- across a single or double constant centre line - across a continuous centre line to the left of a broken line - over a painted island in the centre of the road.

To safely make a U-turn, you must:

- have a clear view of approaching traffic - complete the turn without blocking the free movement of traffic - offer 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 need to leave the lane as soon 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 limitation sign above the lane.

These include lights controlling 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 may accompany at the bottom, at either side.

A traffic signal suggests '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 might go on if the way is clear. Take special care if you mean to turn left or ideal and offer way to pedestrians who are crossing. A thumbs-up is not a right of way, it is a licence to proceed with care.


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

An amber light suggests 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 to the line or the light when the amber light first appears that stopping would be harmful.

A green arrow (also referred to as a filter light) indicates that you might carry on in the direction of the arrow, presuming it is safe and the way is clear, even if a traffic signal is also showing.

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, taking care not to obstruct any approaching traffic. Then, when it is safe, complete your turn. You must just await the filter arrow for turning right when you remain in the junction and if it would be dangerous to finish 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, however just if you initially pave the way to traffic already coming through the junction on the other roadway. image reveals a flashing amber light.

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


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

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

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

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


Bicyclists - you need to obey the traffic control and might just continue past a green traffic signal if it is safe to do so.
