A flashing yellow arrow traffic signal is coming to 4th Ave and 8th Street in Yuma on Oct 28th! A flashing yellow arrow means you can make your left turn, but only when it is safe to do so. You must use caution and yield to pedestrians and oncoming traffic as those drivers will have a green light. With more traffic on the roads, everyday, there is a larger backup of traffic at intersections. Implementing this flashing yellow arrow should get more traffic through during each signal cycle. The flashing yellow arrow does not replace the solid yellow arrow,.... it is an addition to traffic signal. Police Dept asks that everyone be patient while drivers get adjusted to the change.. The flashing yellow arrow is already in some cities in Arizona and in other states.
