The following excerpt is from White v. MacDonald, 2011 NSSC 323 (CanLII):

The Respondent stated he had a “flashing green arrow”. If he did, he is entitled to take some comfort that others will abide by the rules of the road but he cannot do so without regard to his own safety or the safety of others. (Enright v. Marwick (2004) BCCA 259)
