Left turn on red is permitted when turning onto a one-way street, be it from a two-way or from another one-way. Turning left on red onto a two way street is prohibited.

Left turn on red may also be done on a red left arrow provided there is not a NO TURN ON RED sign and that it meets the criteria listed above.

actually I see this is true, and I'm very surprised !! (never tried it, or seen it done, but surely would like to do it at times)
Left on red onto one way from 2 way. I would guess you CANNOT do this on a red arrow, while oncoming traffic is green, thus thus can be an interesting dilema with lights that may synchronize differently (delayed red arrow) or clockwise sequencing (your side 'straight through drivers have red, but oncoming straight thru traffic is green) I better talk to the cops.

It's legal. I see it done all the time in Coos Bay and North Bend onto Hwy 101. Hwy 101 thru these 2 towns is separated roadways in each North-South direction. Keeps the flow of traffic going.

Thanks all...

Yes it is legal..... I even seen a city transit bus do it....

Although I am still not sure if you can do it on a red arrow..... That really does not seem right.
