2007-06-15 07:39 UTC Notes for drivers: The meaning of Red Lights

It came to my attention while I was cycling to Bab5 tonight that not all drivers of big cars may be fully aware of the meaning of this device sometimes found near intersections:

A red pointing arrow on a pole.

For the purposes of making sure drivers in the area are well educated, I would like to clarify the meaning of this device. It means "stop". That is to say, "do not turn left onto oncoming traffic".

Thank you for your attention.
