A yield sign indicates that a driver?

Yield signs are red and white with red letters. These signs alert the driver to any upcoming hazards or road conditions that do not reflect an Immediate condition. A yield sign calls on the driver to do the following: Slow down, defer to oncoming or intersecting traffic, stop when necessary, proceed when safe, and remain aware of oncoming vehicles. A flashing yellow light has the same meaning as a yield sign. When a flashing yellow light is observed, the driver should be cautious both prior to and while passing through the intersection.
