    It means you should slow down and give the right-of-way to all vehicles and pedestrians.


    Be cautious and aware of all traffic - and slow down, as you don’t know what might be coming..

    The stop sign calls on the driver to make a FULL stop.


    Traffic does not progress during a STOP.

    You are going in the wrong direction and need to do something to get back on track.

    Traffic Lights

    Steady Red: STOP. Do not enter crosswalk or intersection. A right turn is permitted, after stopping.  Vehicles making a right turn must yield to pedestrians and all vehicle traffic.

    Steady Yellow: Caution. Traffic signal is about to change to red. Begin to slow down. A yellow light clears the intersection before the red light.

    Green: GO. When the way is clear of traffic and pedestrians, you may go straight ahead or turn left or right where permitted.

    Road conditions may be dangerous; Slow speed and keep alert AT ALL TIMES!

    Road construction warning signs help prevent drivers from being caught off guard by changes in their route, along with protecting workers by slowing down traffic.


    Construction can mean slow progress in traffic and longer commute times.

    Certain environments like mountainous passes or icy bridges pose dangers to drivers. Road conditions with a  history of causing accidents will have DANGER signs posted.


    There is dangerous conditions a head!

    Road conditions are great, proceed at the speed limit posted.  You will make good time.

    A detour is a side road that drivers must go down when the main road is closed. It will take longer to get there but, it is safer than the main route for a variety of reasons.
