The new national standard for left-turn traffic signals is the FYA (Flashing Yellow Arrow) display. After a 10 year study, researchers from across the country have found the FYA display is better understood by drivers and can potentially decrease traffic crashes.
When you see the FYA (Flashing Yellow Arrow) in a left-turn display, you are required to YIELD to the opposing traffic, which is not required to stop.
When you see the solid green arrow, your left-turn is protected because the opposing traffic is required to stop.
A solid yellow arrow will be displayed prior to the red arrow indications which require you to stop at the traffic signal.
