Whenever traffic is controlled by traffic signal indications exhibiting different colored lights successively one at a time, or with arrows, the following colors only shall be used and the lights shall indicate and apply to drivers of vehicles and pedestrians as follows:

1. “Green indications” shall allow the following:

§ 315.050 Wilbur Park Village Code § 315.050

a. Traffic, except pedestrians, facing a circular green may proceed straight through or turn right or left except as such movement is modified by lane-use signs, turn prohibition signs, lane markings, or roadway design. But, vehicular traffic, including vehicles turning right or left, shall yield the right-of-way to other vehicles, and to pedestrians lawfully within the intersection or an adjacent crosswalk, at the time such signal indication is exhibited.

b. Traffic, except pedestrians, facing a green arrow, shown alone or in combination with another indication, may cautiously enter the intersection only to make the movement indicated by the arrow, or such other movement as is permitted by other indications shown at the same time. Such vehicular traffic shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to other traffic lawfully using the intersection.

c. Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian signal, pedestrians facing any green indication, except when the sole green indication is a turn arrow, may proceed across the roadway within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.

2. “Steady yellow indications” shall have the following meanings:

a. Traffic, except pedestrians, facing a steady circular yellow or yellow arrow signal is thereby warned that the movement allowed by green indications is being terminated and that a red indication will be exhibited immediately following the yellow indications at which point vehicular traffic shall not enter the intersection. No vehicle shall be in the intersection at the time the yellow indication is terminated and the red indication is begun.

b. Pedestrians facing a steady circular yellow or yellow arrow signal, unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian signal, are thereby advised that there is insufficient time to cross the roadway before a red indication is shown and no pedestrian shall then start to cross the roadway.

3. “Steady red indications” alone shall require the following:

a. Vehicular traffic facing a steady circular red signal alone shall stop at a clearly marked stop line or as near to the line as previously stopped traffic will allow, before entering the intersection. If no stop line is present, drivers shall stop before entering the intersection. If a crosswalk is present on the near side of the intersection, drivers shall stop before entering the crosswalk. No vehicular traffic may enter the intersection until the signal allows such movement, except under the provisions of Section 315.080.

b. No pedestrian facing the signal shall enter the roadway until the green is shown alone, unless authorized so to do by a pedestrian “walk” signal.

c. Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian signal, pedestrians facing a steady circular red or red arrow signal alone shall not enter the roadway.

4. “Flashing signal indications” shall have the following meanings:

a. Flashing red (stop signal): When a red lens is illuminated with intermittent flashes, drivers of vehicles shall stop at a clearly marked stop line. If a crosswalk is present at the near side of the intersection, drivers of vehicles shall stop before entering the crosswalk. The right to proceed shall be subject to the rules applicable after making a stop at a stop sign.

b. Flashing yellow (caution signal): When a yellow lens is illuminated with intermittent
§ 315.050 Traffic Control Devices § 315.090

flashes, drivers of vehicles may proceed through the intersection or past such signal only with caution.

5. In the event a traffic signal is erected and maintained at a place other than an intersection, the provisions of this Section shall be applicable except as to those provisions which by their nature can have no application. Any stop required shall be made at a sign or marking on the pavement indicating where the stop shall be made, but in the absence of any such sign or marking, the stop shall be made at the signal. (County Ord. No. 12.347 §1203.020, 11-21-85)

SECTION 315.060: PEDESTRIAN INDICATIONS

Whenever pedestrian indications exhibiting the words or symbols for “walk” or “don’t walk” are in place, the indications shall mean the following:

1. The “don’t walk” indication or a symbol of a raised palm, steadily illuminated, means that a pedestrian shall not enter the roadway in the direction of the indication.

2. The “don’t walk” indication or a symbol of a raised palm, while flashing, means that a pedestrian shall not start to cross the roadway in the direction of the indication, but that any pedestrian who has partly completed crossing during the steady walk indication shall proceed to a sidewalk, or to a safety island.

3. A “walk” indication or symbol of a walking person, steadily illuminated, means that pedestrians facing the signal indication may proceed across the roadway in the direction of the indication. (County Ord. No. 12.347 §1203.030, 11-21-85)

SECTION 315.070: OBSERVANCE OF LANE DIRECTION CONTROL SIGNALS

SECTION 315.080: WHEN RIGHT TURNS AT RED LIGHTS PROHIBITED

After stopping as required by Section 315.050(3), vehicular traffic facing a steady red signal may cautiously enter the intersection to make a right turn unless a sign is erected prohibiting the movement as listed herein. Vehicular traffic entering the intersection to make a right turn on the steady red signal shall yield the right of way to pedestrians and other traffic proceeding as directed by the signal at the intersection. (County Ord. No. 12.347 §1203.050, 11-21-85)

SECTION 315.090: DISPLAY OF UNAUTHORIZED SIGNS, SIGNALS OR MARKINGS

A. No person shall place, maintain or display or cause to be placed, maintained or displayed upon or in view of any highway or roadway an unauthorized sign, signal, marking or other device which purports to be or is an imitation of or resembles an official traffic control device or which attempts to direct the movement of traffic, or which hides from view or interferes with the effectiveness of any official traffic control device or signal.

B. No person shall place or maintain or cause to be placed or maintained nor shall any public authority permit upon any highway or roadway any traffic sign or signal bearing any commercial advertising.

C. This Section shall not be deemed to prohibit the erection upon private property adjacent to highways or roadways of signs giving useful directional information and of a type that cannot be mistaken for official signs.

D. Every such prohibited sign, signal or marking is hereby declared to be a public nuisance and the authority having jurisdiction over the highway or roadway is hereby empowered to remove it or cause it to be removed without notice. (County Ord. No. 12.347 §1218.100, 11-21-85)

SECTION 365.090: IDENTIFICATION OF VEHICLES OF PROTECTED AREAS

A. This Section sets forth the procedure for identification of vehicles used by residents of particular subdivisions or areas under provisions of schedules of this Code which exempt from the application of a specific prohibition “residents of (area) with vehicles properly identified pursuant to this Section”. A vehicle other than a motorcycle is “properly identified” if it has a currently valid identifying sticker affixed to the inside of lower corner of the windshield on the passenger’s side. A motorcycle is “properly identified” if the operator has the identifying sticker in possession.

B. A person who owns or regularly uses one (1) or more vehicles and who resides within an area whose residents are exempted from the application of one (1) or more prohibitions of a schedule contained in this Code may apply to the Director of Revenue of St. Louis County, on forms provided by the Director of Revenue, for an identifying sticker.

C. The Director of Revenue shall issue such an identifying sticker if the Director of Revenue finds that the applicant is entitled to one. The sticker shall be in such form as the Director of Revenue determines suitable adequately to identify a vehicle, and shall be valid for a period of time, not exceeding three (3) years, as the Director of Revenue determines.

D. Upon adoption of any provisions in any schedule of this Code providing for exemption of residents of a particular area, the Director of Revenue shall make a reasonable effort to notify the residents affected of their eligibility, but lack of actual notice shall not be a defense to any prosecution arising from a schedule provision.

E. No identification sticker shall be affixed to any vehicle other than the vehicle for which it is was issued by the Director of Revenue, and no identification sticker shall be transferred to or used by any person to whom it was not issued. Upon sale or other transfer of a vehicle to which a sticker is affixed, or upon the removal of the person owning or regularly using a vehicle to which a sticker is affixed from the area for which the sticker is issued, the sticker shall be deemed void and shall no longer entitle use of the vehicle under the exemption of the scheduled provision.

F. The Director of Revenue may adopt any regulation to implement this Section as the Director of Revenue finds expedient to assure the proper issuance of identification stickers. The Director of Revenue may delegate the authority to print and issue identification stickers at cost to subdivision trustees or other representatives of a protected area, and shall supervise the performance of such activities to ensure compliance with this Section.
