What’s Driving You Crazy: Flashing Lights

Posted: Updated:

Kathy asked about the solid and flashing red lights outside of fire stations.

She said, "I am not certain what the law is when the sign says to ‘stop when flashing.’ I see people treat them the same as the HAWK signals."

We talked to the Tucson Fire PIO about this.

He says the basic red light law applies here as well. If it's solid red, drivers should come to a complete stop until the light changes. If it's flashing red, drivers should stop first and proceed once it's clear.

The big difference with these signals compared to HAWK crossings? Here there's more of a chance you'll see an emergency vehicle. The Tucson Fire PIO reminds drivers to look for any emergency vehicles and yield the right of way.

What else is driving you crazy? Let Melanie Hunter know here.
