Signs Signals and Markings – Texas Online Defensive Driving Course

Signs Signals and Markings – Texas Online Defensive Driving Course

Signal 
Signals:
• A flashing yellow light means slow down, cover your brake, and be prepared to stop if necessary.
• A solid yellow light means a red light is coming so be prepared to stop.
• A flashing red light at an intersection is directing you to stop before reaching the crosswalk and then proceed when you can do so safely.
• Unless there is a sign that says; no right turn on red, then at a solid red light you’re allowed to make a right turn after coming to a complete stop. Make sure the road is safe before you turn onto it.
• At a solid red light, you can make a turn left from a one-way street onto another one-way street if it’s going left. You have to come to a complete stop first.
• A solid green light means, proceed.
• If a traffic signal is obviously broken or not working due to a power outage, then treat that intersection like a four way stop. That means everybody stop.
 
Sign Shapes:
• A red octagonal shaped sign means stop.stop
• A red and white triangular sign you need to yield the right-of-way.
• Brown signs are for scenic destinations.
• Green signs in the shape of a rectangle will tell you the name of a street name or city and provide distance and direction.
• Blue signs are service signs. Look for these signs to help find service stations, places to eat, rest areas, phones and overnight facilities.
• Yellow signs are warning signs and alert drivers of existing for potentially hazardous road conditions. Yellow pennant-shaped signs caution motorists where passing is unsafe.
 
Pavement Markings:
• Pavement markings help to warn, regulate and direct traffic.
• The markings may be either white or yellow with each having a different meaning.
• Sometimes a white stop line is painted across pavement lanes at traffic signs and signals.
• If you have to stop at a sign or signal, make sure you stop behind these lines whenever they’re there.
• Solid white lines are used for pavement-edge lines shoulder markings, traffic channeling and for lane control for traffic going in the same direction.
• Yellow lines or centerlines perform many of these same functions, but they always separate traffic flowing in opposite directions.
• Anytime traffic lines are dashed or broken, pass with care.
• When traffic lines are solid, do not pass or crossover them. Exceptions are:
– When turning left across traffic, then it is okay to cross over the solid yellow or white line. Double solid lines are not to be crossed. For example, on four-lane road, never cross the double yellow line to pass. The only time you may cross a double yellow line is when making a left turn only.
• Lanes reserved for turning are called turn lanes.
• You may also find turn lanes at intersections.
– Turn lanes are there to help give drivers more time to make their turn, to ease the flow of traffic and help reduce the chances of possible crashes.
• A two-lane road with a dashed yellow lane in the middle. For this marking you can pass whenever it is safe to do so.
– In cases it is not safe to pass because of an upcoming hill, curve or intersection, you will see a solid line on one side of the road.
– If you have a solid line on the side you are driving on. This means, do not pass.
Signs Signals and Markings 
Sign Shapes and Colors:
• A yellow diamond warns you of possible hazards ahead.
• A yellow pentagon is for school crossing or a pedestrian zone.
• A round yellow sign warns you of an approaching railroad crossing.
• Vertical rectangular black and white signs regulate functions such as speed limits, turns and directions.
• Bright orange signs warn you of construction or road maintenance.
