Well the answer is YES you can make a right on red in NJ AFTER you come to a complete stop, unless there is a No Right On Red sign.

NY State does allow also but NOT NY City. I worked in Staten Island decades ago and saw many out of town drivers get nailed because many forget Staten Island is part of NYC.

Also in 37 states,,, not NJ but others you an make a LEFT on Red at intersections of two one-way streets.

I remember doing that in Virginia except where they had No LEFT On Red signs.

You can Goog that, I've seen it all over, not NJ.

https://www.quora.com/Traffic-Law-Is...-circumstances


The left turn on red section of wikipedia states, In the U.S., 37 states and Puerto Rico allow left turns on red only if both the origin and destination streets are one way. ... Four other states, namely Idaho, Michigan, Oregon and Washington, allow left turns on red onto a one-way street even from a two-way street.

Wake up people, if you don't know you can turn right or not. Why can't you Google it!?

The law says right on red allowed after full stop....not MANDATORY right on red after blowing through the light.

If you're going to Gooddamit anyone, go look in the mirror.

Wow, that is a jerk move. Doing that to someone can potentially cause an accident. Personally, I am a generally anxious driver and do not like turning right on red - I will only do it when I feel perfectly safe and confident enough to do so. In addition, some intersections are harder to see what's happening than others - and the car behind me may not be able to see what I see. But someone honking their stupid horn at me demanding that I turn is only adding to my stress level and is tantamount to bullying. There have been times I felt pressured to turn by a-holes honking behind me -- my anxiety increased, my adrenaline spiked and sort of blinded my vision, so I started turning - only to stop short because of oncoming traffic that nearly collided with me. An adrenaline rush while driving is no joke.

STOP BEING A JERK - DON'T HONK AT PEOPLE WHO WON'T TURN RIGHT ON RED. Instead, take a deep breath and enjoy the scenery!

There is etiquette to honking. A couple of short honks to remind the driver it’s ok to go isn’t rude, IMO.

Yes, there is. My son loves my car horn because it has a pleasant, rather quiet little toot that you can send to the people who are texting at a stop. It's green. Thank you.

If you did that to me, I'd ram the side of your car, and YOU would be at fault. And then I'd sue you for every penny I could.

Best be careful who you f-with on the roads.

I usually only flip my high beams on a tap rather than add to noise pollution. Most people get that otherwise its a few seconds afore they wake the F up,,, almost never honk for those things.

Towanda. Not the town in PA.

And one day I will all over the news for causing a major accident. I am the one who crashed my dump truck on I-280 jumping over the divider. I am the one who caused the recent head on collision. I should be embarrassed for all of this crap I did.
