FLORIDA - Drivers will soon have a half-second longer to get through yellow lights.
The Florida Department of Transportation said the increase will be on all state roads with red light cameras.
District traffic managers were sent a recent letter saying to add four-tenths of a second to yellow lights.
The state said this will give drivers more time to see the traffic light change and react.
FDOT said the new yellow light directive is based on national research.
