Traffic Signals

1. Red Light
2. Amber Light
3. Green Light

The Significance of Red Light

On seeing top red light glowing, please slow down your vehicle.

Stop your vehicle in the lane you intend to follow.

Stop well before stop line.

Do not come to other lane in order to get ahead of traffic.

Amber light gives time to vehicles to clear the road if the vehicle has just crossed the stop line.

In such a situation, when you have already crossed the stop line and amber line comes on, do not panic or increase speed, smoothly pass through.

If you're behind the Stop line when Amber light comes on you have to stop, but warn any vehicle pursuing you closely.

Green Light means you have to look around. If safe, move smoothly, do not tear through the traffic on seeing green light.

At cross roads, you may be allowed to turn left all the times while in some cases it may not be allowed. At some crossings, straight & side moving traffic is allowed simultaneously while in some cases it is not.

On some crossings, right turning may be banned.

Flashing red signal means you have to come to a halt.

Look around if it is safe to move ahead, priority is to be given to vehicles coming from your right side.

Flashing amber light indicates that you can move with care after slowing down.
