Flashing Yellow Arrow signals coming to Nevada

<< < (2/2)

Without going into detail already discussed in a previous thread in the General section, suffice it to say that one of the reasons FYA was developed was because there is a great deal of ambiguity regarding permitted lefts and circular greens. Flashing green is not used in the United States (at least, not in any official capacity as far as FHWA is concerned).

Flashing yellow arrows will not replace green arrows. They will be used in place of the green ball to indicate that a left turn can be made after yielding to opposing traffic.

Re: flashing green lights. They are used in Massachusetts to indicate a pedestrian-activated crosswalk signal. It is not MUTCD approved, but Massachusetts has a long history of doing things their own way regardless of national standards.

^Yank their funding! They will comply! CalTrans will submi-- oh.

Roadfro: Yep, Portland Oregon.
