The Ankeny Police Traffic Unit would like to remind drivers that roads can only be safe for everyone if we are all following the traffic signals. Depending on the speed limit of the roadway, the yellow light only lasts for a second or two. A “steady circular yellow” or “steady yellow arrow” light means vehicular traffic is warned that the related green movement is being terminated and vehicular traffic shall no longer proceed into the intersection and shall stop. A violation of a yellow light (321.257(b) is punishable by a citation fine of $210.25. View the Iowa law.
