​​​Ever wonder how traffic signals work and why stopping at the stop bar is crucial for road safety?​​​​

Stop Bar Yes No.png 

The STOP BAR is that thick white line painted on the road before an intersection or crosswalk. Stopping here can improve your view of oncoming traffic, ensures you are not in the way of turning traffic, and/or gives pedestrians a safe space to cross.

Signals detect vehicles at the stop bar up to 30ft back. If you are not within that zone, the signal does not know you are there and YOU MAY GET SKIPPED!  Not getting a green can be frustrating! 

Running a red light or stopping beyond the stop bar can result in fines, points on your driving record or even crashes. 

When approaching a signal ​on a solid yellow, come to a stop if it is safe to do so. When approaching a signal on a red, come to a complete stop BEHIND the stop bar, and wait for the traffic signal to change. 



​Roadway paint contains dry reflective beading. When it rains and water covers the imbedded beads, vehicle lights reflect off the water and are unable to make it down to the beads, making lines harder to see. Adjust your driving speeds to be appropriate for the weather conditions. 

The state maintains striping once a year with a Long Line contract. To submit a concern, fill out our Pavement Markings and Marker Request Form


The state maintains street lights on freeways (interstates, parkways, the un-signalized portion of new circle), roundabouts outside city limits, and very few other scattered locations. Check to see if your light is State Owned Lighting (attn: lighting may not be up to date for current projects)​ and report location of light on our  Technician Report​ Form.  
If the light of concern is not on this map, contact the local utility company, city, or county to report the outage.
