Q: I have always been confused by a flashing red or flashing yellow traffic light at an intersection. What am I required to do at these lights?
A: On a flashing red signal, you treat the intersection as if you had a stop sign. Just come to a stop and then proceed when it is safe to do so. At a flashing yellow, you do not have to stop, but the light is advising you to proceed withcaution. Just continue alertly through the intersection.
