NEMA Publishes Flashing Yellow Arrow Amendment to NEMA TS 2-2003 (R2008)


11/15/2012 10:00AM

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published Amendment 4 to NEMA TS 2-2003 (R2008) Traffic Controller Assemblies with NTCIP Requirements, supporting Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA) features.

Amendment 4 standardizes the control and monitoring features for FYA, a traffic signal head indication, adding these features to the widely-used NEMA TS 2. In government-sponsored field trials, FYA improved driver performance when yielding to oncoming traffic and pedestrians before making a turn.

Amendment 3 is also new, and modifies NEMA TS 2 provisions for contactors, including revisions to Figure 5-4 and Section 5.4.2.3, and addition of new Section 5.4.3.2.1.

Copies of Amendment 4, for FYA, may be downloaded at no charge by visiting NEMA’s website. Amendment 3, for contactors, may also be downloaded at no charge by visiting NEMA’s website.
