Green Traffic Light

  • You may travel through the intersection.
  • You must allow any pedestrians, bicyclists, or other vehicles in the intersection to pass first.
  • Do not proceed if you cannot clear the intersection before the light turns red; you may be given a ticket for blocking traffic.
  • When turning left at a green light, yield to those traveling straight.

Green Arrow Traffic Light

  • You may turn in the direction that the arrow indicates if the intersection is clear of traffic, pedestrians, and bicycles.
  • When you have a green arrow, other traffic has a red light, so you will not have to yield to traffic driving straight.
