    That yellow blinking light needs to go or turn into a solid arrow before that happens again.

    I am not a fan of the blinking yellow arrow! I have had too many close calls in the Green Springs Telegraph intersection … People just don’t understand the concept.

    He almost hit me in the Albertsons parking lot! Just before his wreck.

    I agree, they need to get rid of that blinking yellow light!!!

    I agree the yellow light wasnt a smart move I go the round about way on that road now just to avoid that light……

    What’s the confusion with the blinking yellow arrow? Like any other blinking yellow light, the operator can procede with caution. However, I have seen vehicle operators sit and wonder, now what, when they come across the blinking yellow arrow.

    I agree. It’s like a yield sign. It does not mean you have the right of way. Too many people always in a hurry.

    They should get rid of the solid red lights too. Just way too much stuff to pay attention to while driving around.

    Wow. I almost had the same situation the day before this occurred. I came off the freeway and had a green light and the person turning left had a blinking yellow and went right before I got to the intersection and luckily I had slammed on my brakes just in the nick of time to avoid being hit by the driver. I use that intersection everyday and it is one of the worst ones in the city. I always slow down when coming towards it because I have seen multiple accidents happen. I understand the need for that blinking light so more cars can turn on River Road, but that blinking yellow light needs to go because drivers just don’t understand the concept or something.

    A big problem we have here is extremely aggressive drivers.
