Flashing Yellow Left Turn Signals Planned for Randall Road

Kane County transportation officials plan to install yellow flashing left turn arrows along Randall Road with the hopes of improving safety between Fabyan Parkway and Silver Glen Road in Geneva and St. Charles, according to the Kane County Chronicle. 

The flashing yellow signal means motorists must yield before turning yellow while a steady yellow arrow would continue to mean "motorists should prepare to stop," according to the Kane County Chronicle. 

Construction on the safety improvements along Randall Road is expected to start this summer and are estimated to cost about $1.7 million, according to the article.

If I were doing it, I'd make them flashing red arrows. Everybody knows they have to stop for red, and it would give them the chance to see the sign that says "may turn left on flashing red arrow".

red means stop, people will come to a full stop

This is stupid. I predict more accidents due to people being confused by the multiple uses of yellow on a turn signal.

Seems like a waste of money. I agree with Bob M. it will confuse people. After installed, if they cause more accidents from people who hit their brakes hard on yellow, and the lights deemed confusing, do you get the $1.7 million back?
