Pull up to, but not over, the white stop line at traffic lights

10-Feb-2012

Motorists should pull up to, but not over, the white stop line at a signalized intersection. Some signals work by detecting a vehicle in this specific location. For instance, the traffic lights at the intersection of Ashburn Lake Road and Rothesay Avenue are traffic-activated.

Some stop lines are set back from the traffic lights to allow larger vehicles to turn from one street to another at an intersection.
