Descripton

A traffic signal, also known as a traffic light, is a signaling device positioned at a road intersection, pedestrian crossing, or other location that indicates which driver, rider, or walker is assigned the right-of-way at a given moment, using a universal color code (and a precise sequence for those that are color-blind). Many municipalities have equipment installed on these signals that allows for signal preemption of emergency vehicles.
