Signs at traffic lights are generally for when the traffic lights aren't working for some reason

It means if the lights go out you're not allowed to go left

Traffic lights before signs.

Doesn't it mean you are not allowed to turn left, but are still allowed to turn to drive in the opposite direction?

when two different 'signs' (because i don't know a better word atm) are at the same junction, the 'higher' ranked overrides the 'lower' ranked one.

policeman > lights > signs > whatever rule applies to junctions without signs etc. in your country

so, as long as there's a policeman regulating the flow of traffic, you can ignore lights & signs. if there's no policeman, but lights & signs, ignore the signs. there might be exceptions, though.

I lived by an intersection like that most of my life

actually wrong. its when the lights arent being used that the sign counts

I can assure you that's not true. My mother and I grew up in the same house just a few blocks from a light like this. While learning to drive I asked her, my uncle, and my grandparents about what to do in that situation and they all told me the same thing.

Going through my old Driver's Manual, it says absolutely nothing about signs being used for when traffic lights are out.

This guys are arguing you with lights before signs, but they don't realize that that refers to other cases. Most probably you are right, and it is an intersection like that.

Lights mean more than signs in situations like:

You get to an intersection. There is a giant STOP sing. Lights are green. You don't stop because lights>signs. If lights weren't working you'd have to stop. That's what.

When lights are out where I live, we are supposed to treat it as a stop sigh.

Has no one thought about 2 lanes going in one direction?

it means no left turn on red lights
#11 - anon (07/03/2013) [-]
This is how it goes:
Traffic Police or whatever it's called > Traffic lights > Traffic signs > Priority.

or there for the other lane one lane to turn other to go straight

Umm. As far as I know, If there's a sign "No left turn" than there should not be for any reason a green arrow pointing left as it indicates that you have a green light to turn left.

I actually have a sign like that for right handed turns. When the light turns green with a > arrow, you can turn right.
