The Law It is illegal to remove or deface any sign, signal, or road marking.
Traffic Signals When hung horizontally signals have red on left, yellow or amber in the middle and green on the right When hung vertically signals have red on top, yellow or amber in the middle and green on the bottom

Traffic Signals with Arrows Traffic signals with arrows control the flow of movement at an intersection.

Road Markings White lines in the road means that traffic is going in the same direction. Yellow lines means that traffic is going in opposite directions. A white line is on the right side of the edge of the road. A yellow line is on the left side of the road. Regardless of color, solid lines means no passing. Passing is permitted when there is a dotted line.
Stop Line A single solid white line across a road at an intersection with a stop sign or a traffic signal is a stop line.
