Overland Park, KS - Carl Vanwinkle likes the blinking yellow arrow.
He thinks it may have helped avoid a vehicle accident that caused him serious injuries and changed his life.
Carl was a passenger in a car that was broadsided in March 2009 at the intersection of 127th Street and Antioch.
Flashing yellow arrow left-turn displays have been adopted by the Federal Highway Administration and the Kansas Department of Transportation. The system is a new national and state standard for permissive left-turn operation.
