Hong Kong Travel Dictionary: Traffic Lights

Hong Kong Travel Dictionary - information for visitors

Traffic Lights

Hong Kong Traffic Lights use a standard Red-Yellow-Green approach. Pedestrian traffic lights are Red and Green. Simply Stop at Red and Go at Green. Drivers in Hong Kong typically comply to the traffic light signals. With the exception of mid-night boy racers, very rare that you would see drivers run a red light. While red mini-bus are known for their aggressive driving, they are only 'closed-to' running red lights. Having said that, as visiting pedestrians, it pays to check carefully before you cross at Green. At cross intersections, diagonal crossing is not permitted. Pedestrian must first walk direct across then make 90 degrees turn and cross.
