City Installing Flashing Yellow Arrows

Quick question: Flashing yellow arrows. You've seen them in other communities - do you love 'em or hate 'em?

The reason the City wants to know is it's converting many of its "doghouse-style" signal heads to flashing yellow arrows in the coming months. There are a couple of the flashing yellow arrows installed, and you'll soon find more around Lakewood.

For reference, see the attached picture depicting a flashing yellow light, with one column of lights. When making a left during a flashing yellow light, the driver must yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians in the sidewalk.
