EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Eau Claire POLICE Department wants to remind drivers about what flashing traffic lights mean. They say their cameras captured this near-miss recently, that could have happened due to drivers not understanding the flashing lights.

Eau Claire has several intersections with flashing lights during the overnight and early morning hours. A flashing red light should be treated the same as a stop sign. Drivers must come to a full stop before going when it is safe to.
