COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina intersections are getting a new traffic signal.

State Department of Transportation crews are installing a flashing yellow arrow at some lights across the state.

The flashing yellow arrow is already being used in a number of places. Drivers can make a left turn when the arrow is flashing as long as the road is clear.

DOT Traffic Signal and Systems Engineer Carol Jones says the new signal will make it easier for drivers to know what to do. She says at many intersections, drivers have to look way to the right to see the signal.

Red arrows and green arrows will continue to be used on signals and won't change meanings. The signals with the flashing yellow arrow will replace the five-light doghouse signals.
