Amber lights mean slow, not stop

Take care and watch for those who are not watching for you.

There has been much discussion regarding the Crosswalks in this town, particularly those with flashing amber lights.

We have all encountered flashing amber lights with road construction.  We must slow down and if we are expected to stop, there will be a flag person there to see to it.  We have also encountered the intersection where there is a flashing red light.  We MUST stop and proceed when it is safe to do so.

To the motorist, flashing amber means ‘slow down’ and ‘caution’.  If the motorist is REQUIRED to stop, the lights should be flashing RED.  Pedestrians must not expect motorists to stop for the flashing amber, or for that matter, walk signs at intersections as many are missed.  Take care and watch for those who are not watching for you.  Be thankful for those (the majority) who do slow and stop.
