Understanding the Flashing Yellow Left-Turn Signal

The City of Hot Springs, Arkansas acknowledges the Michigan Department of Transportation for the use of this instructional video.

This new signal configuration can be seen along Higdon Ferry Road, at the intersections of Higdon Ferry Road and Central Avenue, Higdon Ferry and Twin Points Road and Higdon Ferry and Temperance Hill Road. Federal Highway Administration research found motorists more clearly understood what to do when presented with the flashing yellow arrow. Additionally, the flashing yellow arrow is especially effective at intersections with high volumes of traffic as it provides more flexibility to optimize signal timing.
