there is a right turn corner but with red light and there is no any sign. can we make right turn even there is red light? i saw other similar thing but it had a sign ask to fully stop then make right turn when light is red. i think if there is no any sign but it had red light then need to wait until green light....anyone knew it? thanks

You can turn right on red unless a sign tells you that you cannot. Some signs say you must come to a complete stop before doing so. But that sign means you can still turn on red. Only when you see “No Turn On Red” is it not allowed.

The real challenge in NJ is turning left.

My problem always is sitting at a light and the car in front of me is signaling right-turn. I honk and honk, then pull my hand out to tell the car in front of me to turn already goddamit. The car in front of me, a woman just threw both of her hand up and she's not gonna do it.

So recently, I overcame this problem at my area. I simply wait until there's no traffic and I pulled around the double yellow line and circle around the car in front of me that refuses to turn right on a red light with zero traffic.

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

You, sir, are a true New Jersey driver.

So if that car was at the light waiting to turn left, or go straight, would you have still driven around her like an impatient maniac or would you have simply waited the 10 seconds for the light to turn green?

This is an issue I have with Rockaway Mall. As soon as you come off Route 80, and go to that traffic light closest to the Sears there, there is a traffic light for left turns (a solid light) and then there is a separate traffic light (right arrow) for the two turning right lanes. I noticed that nobody ever turns right on red at that particular intersection, but I run that light all the time as long as I stop first.

Depending on the intersection, I don't honk if somebody is not turning right on red, because sitting at a red light is perfectly legal and I usually give the out of staters a chance, because they are busy struggling with directions and checking their GPS.

you nailed it!


"Your problem"


Until you pay the guy's car insurance, your desire to control traffic flow is irrelevant.


Some right on red situations are more dicey than others, right turn at driver's discretion.


Far greater traffic hazard are cars rolling thru stop signs and mistaking yield signs for unobstructed runways.


the expectation of the following driver is that the car in front will of course roll thru the stop sign, after all there is a break in the traffic flow. the expectation that the driver in front will roll thru a stop sign has yielded more rear end accidents when the driver instead comes to a complete stop.


Oh yeah, you must come to a complete stop before making a RoR.
