based on this question which I think is obvious, got me thinking about this one.

IS this turn legal where YOU live.

You are driving NB and going to be turning WB (left) at the red light.  Can you legally turn left on the red light onto the WB one way street.

I don't think so, but the only places near me with roads like that are Minneapolis and St. Paul, and I don't go there.

Lots of roundabouts popping up around me though...

Left turn on solid red?

Are you serious?

LMAO

IIRC legally we can turn left on red only if both streets are one way.


If no one is there though...

I *think* in TX a left on red is only legal if both streets are one way.  So in your diagram it would not be legal but if the NB street was one way then it would be.  But I could be wrong.

Who cares? Check for cops, then go for it and DO NOT cause a wreck. Take your hand off your peepee, put your phone down, and engage yourself. The people tripping up over this stuff are government employees trying to justify their existence.

only if the N/S was a one-way also
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 11:54:58 AM EDT
Yes, left on Red is legal in Oklahoma, but only at the intersection of two one-way streets.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 11:58:57 AM EDT
No, NY is one way to one way only. I don't really see a problem with it from a two-way to one way, there's just as much traffic to watch for as when you make a left turn onto a two-way from a two-way stop/T-intersection.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:02:06 PM EDT
In Idaho you can only turn left on a red if you're in a one way turning into another one way.

Red means stop.
No left turn red in Texas

too many pedestrians.

that law gets lots of out of state people pulled over too.  When I moved back to TX after 15 years in NYC, I felt like I was doing something wrong whenever I turned right on red

yes if you are NOT crossing a right of way.

no, you are crossing southbound traffic.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:09:28 PM EDT
Don't have any one lane roads with traffic lights around here.
It appears to be legal though.

No, left turn on red from a 2-way street, regardless of the street the driver is turning onto, is illegal.

If the northbound street was 1-way also, then the left on red would be legal.

No.

Legal in Oregon.

I've never seen any road that allows left turn on red. That just seems really dumb.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:23:53 PM EDT
Yes, on a one way street. No different than a right turn on red.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:29:31 PM EDT
When my aunt leaned that a left turn on red after a stop was legal if the turn was onto a one way street she decided to share with everyone she knew.

So yes, it is a legal turn provided the driver stops at the red light first and the westbound lane is clear.

Per the drawing not lawful in Texas; however, one can turn left on red from a one way TO a one way.

Edit; beat to it about 87 times...
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:35:34 PM EDT
Not when I took driver's ed in WA.  IIRC the only "free left" is if both streets are one way (left curb lane to left curb lane).

we can turn left on red, from a one way street, onto another one way street. obviously, there aren't very many of these situations to deal with. this should be common sense, but sitting behind some retard who refuses to turn left on red, proves otherwise.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:39:12 PM EDT
No.

From a one way onto a one way is GTG.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:43:43 PM EDT
It's legal in WA unless posted otherwise.

Come to Alpine Texas you can drive how ever the fuck you want. Down the one way going the wrong way, no problem mon!

In Florida you can make a left turn on a red, if you are turning onto a one way street.  Provided there is no oncoming traffic and you stop first.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:52:47 PM EDT
In your diagram, no. If both streets were one-way, yes.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 12:53:12 PM EDT
This sounds like one of the scenarios where I would play it safe and just wait for the green light.  Fuck the annoyed impatient jackwagons behind me honking their honks and shouting "GO!!" out their windows.

IS this turn legal where YOU live.

You are driving NB and going to be turning WB (left) at the red light.  Can you legally turn left on the red light onto the WB one way street.

Not true bro. From a one way OR a two way onto a one way is gtg. (provided no signage prohibits)

Michigan State Police Sgt. Mike Church says: ” Here's what the law allows: “A motorist may turn FROM either a one-way or a two-way street ONTO a one-way street that travels in the same direction as the turn.”
So, basically, vehicles are allowed to turn onto a one-way.

NYers need to live a little. They can't come to a complete stop, look right for traffic, then turn left?

WTF?

Oregon is FUBAR.
A driver can't pump their own gasoline,
Right turns on red are illegal,
Left on red (onto one-way) is permitted.

Oregon is retarded.
I hate Oregon.

Nope, here you can turn left on red only if you're on a one-way street and you're turning onto a one-way street, and it's not posted that it's verboten.
