For a ton* time a lot of people have thought that to light traffic conditions, * person (feeing a red fight should he abfe to make • right- hand turn, after making sure the lanes hi* car to about to eater are dear. Bat before but year, you were allowed to do this only'if then were « sign at the Interaction with the statement; "right turn on red." Otherwise, slate Jaw required that you wait for a green fight, even if yours were the only car in sight Under the new taw a person must cone to a complete slop at a red fight; then on observing that the intersection is dear, the motorist is free to make a right-hand turn. We observe that many persons are not making use of this new convenience. Some out-of-state people and some of our own don't know about it yet, or aren't quite sure about what the law says- A few are Just cautious. They're in the right The new privilege is permissive; if you've signalkd for a right-band turn, you're entitled to wait for a green fight, whether or not the guy behind you honks. But a person who ha* a green light has the right-of-way over a person turning right on red. says CapL Oyde William*, Preeport Polk« Department The person turning right oared must keep out of the way of tWs other vehicle. The effect of this right-of-way rule to that the person turning right on red win almost certainly be blamed if he collides with a vehicle that's moving on a green light. Captain Williams says, There might be a possible exception, he says, if the guy moving with a green light were committing some other traffic violation that was primarily the cause of the accident For instance, if the person with right-of-way approached the intersection at so great a speed that the guy turning right didn't see htm in time to keep clear. There's one circumstance that might get a driver in trouble- lie has stopped at a red tight, and is about to burn right onto a four-lane artery, where he will have two laws, A car with * green tight is going in that same direction, using the Inside lane. So the guy turning right assumes he can turn at will into the outside tan*. That assumption is wrong. The car moving on the green tight is entitled to either lane he choose*, whenever he chooses it tf be decides be wants the outside lane at about the time another car enters it by way of a right turn on red, the right-lam car is in the wrong if it gets in the way, AH this can be staled more simply: You can turn right on a red tight, after stopping; it's up to you not to get hit JIM BISHOP: REPORTER Eleven years ago when JFK was shot T*n ytar$ «go, OB Sept.
