Here's my challenge to everyone on this board~

Tomorrow, drive without breaking (or bending) any traffic laws. Just try it. See "how good" you can be.

It won't be easy, but try it anyway.

No problem; I plan to stay home.

I know it's been covered here before, but I need a refresher on your rules for making turns at intersections. I recall there are some quirks with turning left.
Also, can you make a right on a red light? Thank you.

I think it's the same as most other states:
right turn on red after full stop, unless otherwise posted
left turn yields to oncoming traffic on regular green. Some lights have a "leading" green arrow, others have a "following" arrow. Some intersections are posted to tell you what to expect, others are not. That seems quirky to me.

The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 required in §362(c)(5) that in order for a state to receive federal assistance in developing mandated conservation programs, they must permit right turns on red lights.[4] All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico have allowed right turns on red since 1980, except where prohibited by a sign or where right turns are controlled by dedicated traffic lights. (The last state with a right-on-red ban, Massachusetts, ended its ban on January 1, 1980. The few exceptions include New York City,[7] where right turns on red are prohibited, unless a sign indicates otherwise.
Of course Mass. being Mass., they enacted the law allowing it while posting "No Turn On Red" signs at over 90% of intersections. Over the years, a lot of the signs have come down, especially in more suburban areas, but I'd guess that more than half of all intersections are still posted.

Most places also allow left on red entering a one-way from a one-way and many allow left on red entering a one-way from a two-way.

Thanks, that's what it was - the leading and following green arrows. Someone in the insurance business told me that most accidents occur at intersections and being broadsided is the most common. I try always to look both ways even if I have the right of way.
