Yellow Light

Unless indicated otherwise, when approaching a yellow light, drivers and cyclists must stop before the pedestrian crosswalk or stop line. Or, if there is none, they must stop before the line of the roadway that they are about to cross, unless they are already crossing or are so close it would be impossible for them to stop their vehicle without danger. They must not advance until the signal appears allowing them to advance.
