3 Flashing Lights Traffic Signals 3 Flashing Red STOP before entering the intersection Flashing Yellow - Caution dangerous intersection Flashing Red STOP before entering the intersection Flashing Yellow - Caution dangerous intersection

4 Arrows You may proceed in the direction of the green arrow You may NOT proceed in the direction of the red arrow Traffic Signals 4

5 Testing Your Knowledge When this traffic light is RED a.STOP and remain stopped until the light changes b.Slow down and proceed with caution c.Yield to traffic in the intersection When this traffic light is RED a.STOP and remain stopped until the light changes b.Slow down and proceed with caution c.Yield to traffic in the intersection 5
