The signal will no doubt be familiar to Valdosta drivers as the Georgia Department of Transportation has already upgraded other intersections on North Ashley and North Patterson streets.

As a reminder, remember:

  • A solid red arrow means don’t turn left. Stop.
  • A solid yellow arrow is a warning the light is about to turn red. Drivers should prepare to stop.
  • A flashing yellow arrow allows a left turn only after yielding to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. This is a “permissive” turn. Oncoming traffic has a green light.
  • A solid green arrow provides a “protected” left turn. Oncoming traffic has a red light.

FYA signals are the Department's preferred left turn signal for the convenience and safety of drivers.
