Flashing yellow arrow added to traffic signal

Thonotosassa, FL -- Drivers traveling on Fowler Ave. at the intersection of Jefferson St. will now see a new type of traffic signal, a flashing yellow arrow.  

A flashing yellow arrow allows motorists to turn left with caution, after yielding the right of way to oncoming traffic. 

Flashing yellow arrows are the result of a national study conducted by the Federal Highway Administration, which concluded the new signal is a low-cost safety measure which can help prevent crashes and move more traffic through an intersection safer.  It also provides a clear distinction between when motorists who are turning left are protected from oncoming traffic and when they must yield.  The study concluded that drivers are less likely to make left-turn mistakes when guided by the flashing yellow arrows.
