STOP
When there is a STEADY RED LIGHT, you must stop before crossing the marked stop line or crosswalk. If you do not see any lines, stop before entering the intersection. Wait for a green light  before you start. You may turn right while the light is red, unless a NO TURN ON RED sign is posted at the intersection. You must first stop, check for and yield to pedestrians and other traffic. You may also turn left after you stop at a red light, if you are in the left lane and are turning left from a one-way street onto another one-way street, unless a sign tells you not to turn. You must first stop and  yield to pedestrians and other traffic. 
 

SLOW DOWN AND STOP
A STEADY YELLOW LIGHT tells you a steady red light will soon appear. If you are driving toward an  intersection and a yellow light appears, slow down and prepare to stop. If you are within the  intersection or cannot stop safely before entering the intersection, continue through carefully. 
 

GO
A STEADY GREEN LIGHT means you may drive through the intersection, if the road is clear. You may  also turn right or left unless a sign tells you not to; however, when turning, you must yield to other  vehicles and pedestrians within the intersection. 
 

SPEED LIMIT
A SPEED LIMIT sign indicates the maximum legal  speed for the stretch of highway where it is posted.  Your safety may depend upon driving slower than  the posted speed under poor conditions.
 



FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELT
Fasten both your lap and shoulder belts on every trip. 
 

PEDESTRIAN CROSSING 
Used at a marked crosswalk or in advance of locations where pedestrians may be crossing your path. Be prepared to slow down or stop, if necessary. This sign may have either a yellow background (as shown) or a fluorescent yellow-green background. 
 

STOP
The STOP sign is the only octagon-shaped (8-sided) sign you see on the highway. At an intersection with a STOP sign, you must stop completely, check for pedestrians and cross traffic to clear the intersection before you go again. Slowing down without coming to a full stop is illegal.  When you see a crosswalk or a stop line, stop before the front of your vehicle reaches the painted line. If you cannot see traffic, yield to any pedestrians and then carefully pull forward past the line  until you can see clearly. Check for traffic and pedestrians and then go ahead when the intersection is clear.

YIELD (SLOW DOWN)
YIELD signs are triangular (3-sided) in shape. When you see this sign, you must slow down and check for traffic and give the right-of-way to pedestrians and approaching cross traffic. You stop only when it is necessary. Proceed when you can do so safely without interfering with normal traffic flow. Remember, you must have a sufficient gap in traffic before you can continue on at either STOP or YIELD sign locations. 
 

DO NOT ENTER
The DO NOT ENTER sign is put at the beginning of one-way streets and ramps. When you see this sign, do not drive onto that street or ramp in the direction you are heading. 
 

WRONG WAY
Wrong way signs are placed farther down the one-way street or ramp. They are placed there to catch your attention, if you accidentally turn onto the street or ramp.
 

ONE WAY
The ONE WAY sign means traffic is allowed to move only in the direction the sign is pointing.  If you turn onto a one-way street traveling in the opposite direction, you are likely to get into  a head-on collision.

TURN LEFT ONLY 
If you are in a lane controlled by a sign with a turn arrow and the word “ONLY,” when you reach the intersection, you must make the turn. You may travel only in the direction the arrow points, even if you are  in the turn-only lane in error. 
 

TURN RIGHT ONLY 
If you are in a lane controlled by a sign with a turn arrow and the word “ONLY,” when you reach the intersection, you must make the turn. You may travel only in the direction the arrow points, even if you are in the turn-only lane in error. 
 

LEFT CURVE 
The road curves ahead to the left.  You need to slow down, stay in the  center of your lane and prepare to navigate through the left-bending  curve. 
 

NO PARKING  
You may not park a vehicle at locations  where this sign is posted. 
 

SHARP LEFT TURN 
The road ahead turns sharply to the left. You need to slow down  substantially, stay in the center of your lane and prepare to navigate  through the sharp left turn. Some sharp turn signs have an advisory  speed l ocated on the si gn or posted below it. 
 

SHARP TURNS 
The road ahead turns sharply first in one direction and then back in  the other direction. Slow down substantially and prepare to navigate  through the set of turns.
 

WINDING ROAD (SERIES OF CURVES) 
This sign indicates there are three (3) or more curves in the road ahead. 
 

CHEVRON SIGNS 
There is a sharp change in the direction of the road, such as a curve to the left or right. The road bends in the direction the chevron points. When used in a curve, there will be an advanced curve warning sign, and there may be several chevron signs placed throughout the curve.
