FLASHING YELLOW LIGHT
WHITEFISH, Mont. -

The new Flashing Yellow Arrow will be activated at the signal on Wisconsin & Edgewood in Whitefish on Thursday, November 14.

A flashing yellow arrow means left turns are permitted, but you must first yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians and then proceed with caution. The flashing yellow arrow does not replace the solid yellow arrow and its meaning; it does replace the green “ball” indication as a signal for a yielding left turn. Drivers should always remember: a flashing yellow = turn with caution.
