New Traffic Signals First of their Kind in NWPA
New traffic signals with flashing yellow arrows are being installed at certain intersections within Meadville City Limits. Traffic studies around the nation show these signals reduce left turn traffic accidents by as much at 20%. With these new signals a green arrow indicates you are free to make a left turn, a yellow arrow means yield to pedestrians and incoming traffic, a flashing yellow arrow warns those planning to make a turn that they need to stop at the intersection and wait, and a red arrow means do not turn. The new signals are expected to be in operation by Thursday November 15th.
