I have represented people injured at intersections where the defendant driver claimed he did not know he had to wait for oncoming traffic before he turned left on an unprotected arrow.
In order to curtail these crashes, several cities in the Metroplex, including Irving and Richardson, have been using flashing yellow arrow signs. Drivers know that yellow means to proceed with caution., and the blinking yellow adds to the cautionary tone.
It is not clear whether any of ourTarrant County cities, especially here in Fort Worth, will use these new signs, but they are obviously a good idea. I call on our cities to consider them to avoid needless intersection collisions.
