Traffic lights manage the circulation of vehicles and pedestrians to improve security and access to roadways. You must 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 might get an infringement notice. The notification could 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 require to use the pave the way guidelines to avoid colliding with other vehicles.

You need to 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 instructions of the red traffic arrow past the stop line at the traffic control or, if there is no stop line, the traffic light.

You should 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 stage.

If it's safe to stop, you should 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 crossway is clear.

Example of green traffic control or arrow– the green light is illuminated 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 progress into the intersection past the stop line if you can do so safely.

If there is a safe gap in oncoming traffic, you may finish the right turn. If you remain 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 only 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 vehicles and pedestrians– even if other cars are facing a pave the way or stop indication.

At intersections without traffic lights or at breaks in the centre island of the road, you need to refrain from doing a U-turn if there is a no U-turn indication.

You need to likewise not do a U-turn:

- across a single or double continuous centre line - across a constant centre line to the left of a damaged 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 complimentary movement of traffic - give method to all automobiles and pedestrians.

You should not travel in a lane marked with an illuminated red diagonal cross or pass a traffic indication above a lane showing a red diagonal cross.

If a lit up red diagonal cross is flashing above your lane, you must leave the lane as soon 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 certain direction– above the lane - speed limitation sign above the lane.

These include lights managing junctions and pedestrian crossings.

car park traffic light systems control 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 red light means 'stop'. If the light is red as you approach it, you must not surpass 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 intend to turn left or best and pave the way to pedestrians who are crossing. A green light is not a right-of-way, it is a licence to continue with care.


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

An amber light implies that you should not go beyond the stop line or, if there is no stop line, beyond the light. However, you may go on if you are so near the line or the light when the amber light initially appears that stopping would be dangerous.

A green arrow (likewise referred to as a filter light) means that you might proceed in the instructions of the arrow, presuming it is safe and the method 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 block any oncoming traffic. Then, when it is safe, finish your turn. You should just await the filter arrow for turning right when you remain in the junction and if it would be harmful to finish your turn prior to the filter light appears.

A flashing amber arrow pointing left can appear at a junction with another road. It suggests that you might carry on past the traffic control, but only if you first offer way to traffic already coming through the junction on the other road. image reveals a flashing amber light.

Bear in mind that a flashing amber light at a pelican crossing ways you must yield to pedestrians. See pedestrian lights in the Rules for pedestrians area.


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

A traffic signal revealing a figure of a bicyclist implies that the bicyclist should stop at the traffic signal.

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

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


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