Yellow Left Turn Display

Kitsap County has implemented a new traffic signal display to provide safer, more efficient left turns for motorists. The flashing yellow arrow left turn indication is a new type of display that can replace the circular green indication for left turns at selected signalized intersections.

What does a SOLID RED ARROW mean?
A solid red arrow means STOP. Drivers turning left must STOP and wait.

What does a SOLID YELLOW ARROW mean?
A solid yellow arrow warns drivers that the left turn signal is about to change to a solid red and they should prepare to stop, or prepare to complete their left turn if they are already within the intersection.

A flashing yellow arrow means left turns are permitted, but you must YIELD to oncoming traffic and pedestrians and then proceed with caution. Oncoming traffic will have a green light so YIELD to them when you see a flashing yellow arrow in your turn lane.

What does a SOLID GREEN ARROW mean?
A solid green arrow means it is safe to turn left. Oncoming traffic will see a red light and must stop. Not all signal heads have a solid green arrow.
