This morning, I got mean faced by two women in a car behind me after I waited for the green light to occur for me to make a right turn.


Okay, I'm confused. To me, this sign could easily be misinterpreted. It isn't clear on whether you should make a complete stop before you are clear to make a turn, or if you aren't permitted to proceed beyond the white line at all. I know in the state of Florida you have a right to make a right turn on a red light unless specified not to. However, the "stop here on red" comes short to being clear on what to do.

It's confusing, but it is simply reminding you of the rule to stop at a red light before making a turn.
This is different from a "no turn on red" sign.
The ladies behind you were correct, but probably deserved a slap in their face for being so obnoxious.

Makes sense.

My mother said she got a ticket for making a right turn. She claimed she yielded.

That sign is there to tell you where to stop, but not that you can't turn. It's most likely at an intersection with a lot of foot traffic.

A Stop Here On Red sign is usually used at signalized intersections where vehicles frequently violate the stop line or where it is not obvious to drivers where to stop. As others have noted, it does not mean that you can’t make a right turn after stopping.

Stop here on red signs are usually used for one or two purposes

1. to have drivers treat the light like a stop sign for right turn purposes. (Just like you would do if you we're making a right turn at an intersection that had no lights and only had a stop sign)

2. To inform drivers that they must stop at a certain point prior to the intersection.

Default Right turn on red

First never believe what is posted. Florida right turn on red is legal unless it states NO RIGHT TURN ON RED. Next you do not have to stop first for right turn on red. You must yield and do it cautious. ( State statutes has exact wording) The stop here signs are most likely a way for your city to give you a ticket. If you stop in front of the line or do not stop, there is most likely a traffic camera taken your picture. Welcome to big brother.

Sorry, you DO have to stop on red before making a right turn, and you also DO have to yield to pedestrians and other traffic. Here's the language from the statute:

(c) Steady red indication.—
1. Vehicular traffic facing a steady red signal shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then before entering the intersection and shall remain standing until a green indication is shown; however:a. The driver of a vehicle which is stopped at a clearly marked stop line, but if none, before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection, or, if none then at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic on the intersecting roadway before entering the intersection in obedience to a steady red signal may make a right turn, but shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and other traffic proceeding as directed by the signal at the intersection . . .


Sec. 316.075(1)(c)1.a, Florida Statutes (italics added).
