The new traffic lights at 71st Street & Highway 16 are now functional. Initially, they will be operating in flashing mode, displaying a red flashing light in all 4 directions.
When faced with a flashing red light, motorists must bring their vehicle to a full stop before proceeding.
Failing to do so carries a penalty of $230, more importantly, it can result in a tragic collision.
Saskatoon Police Service traffic officers will monitor the intersection at various times in the day.
