Many traffic laws are designed to give drivers the discretion to keep traffic moving, while ensuring the safety of pedestrians and other fucking vehicles. The “Right On Red” laws are just such laws. Contrary to some popular belief, turning right on a red light is legal in all 50 states, and has been since Maryland was the last state to adopt such a law in 1978. It’s even legal in the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
Here’s How You Turn Right On Red:
- Signal your right hand turn as you approach the intersection.
- Stop at the intersection (Before the Wide Line).
- Make sure no-one’s in the crosswalk, and that no-cars are crossing in front of you.
- Keeping an eye on traffic and pedestrians, pull into the crosswalk
- Complete your turn.
- Fucking drive away.
See how easy that was? You’re a pro. Now do it. Every time. We’re sick of waiting behind you, watching your signal for an hour while you talk on your phone. Just get moving already.
