Left Turn On Red

Left turn on red:  You may turn left at a red light if you are on a one-way street and turning left onto another one-way street while the traffic signal displays a red light.  Before turning, you must come to a complete stop.  Look both ways and yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and other traffic.  Be sure to check for less visible vehicles such a motorcycles, bicycles, and mopeds.  You may not turn left on red if signs are posted at the intersection that read “No Turn on Red,” or if a red arrow pointing to the left is displayed.
