The author comments on the timing of the yellow signal light. He is especially concerned about accidents in intersections which may be caused by the lack of sufficient response time to the yellow signal light, the worsening of this situation when other conditions such as wet pavement or downgrades exist, and the lack of markings to indicate where the dilemma zone is when the signal light turns yellow. He makes recommendations for improving the current situation and eliminating the present highway signs warning of signals ahead, the primary function of which appears to be to warn the public that the traffic signal ahead is not properly designed for this highway and the state wishes to disclaim any responsibility for the accidents that will occur.
