What is your states law
I have just got a ticket for going through a red light caught on camera $485 fine
Here is what happened traveling in a one way ST in the left hand lane turned left into another oneway St as you would normally do if you were driving in the right hand lane turning right. It seems in California that you cannot turn left for any reason as you would with a right hand turn. Being a dodgy Englishman this seems strange if you can turn right at lights and junctions why can't you go left if the situation is reversed as long as you are turning left hand lane to left hand lane what's the problem.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR STATE LAW IS? Please let us know if your state permits this or not.

Left on red onto another one way street is fine in Texas. My radar detector also has a redlight camera database in it and lets me know about 1/4 mile away when one is I don't take any chances whatsoever when there is.

Its fine in Louisiana also

Its fine here too. IF not there are signs stating no left/right turn on red.

Same here in Ontario

I just wish more people would turn left on a red onto a one way st. I lost count on how many times I'm sitting behind some dumb ass that doesn't know they can turn left on a red.

If it was me I'd fight the ticket.

You cant turn left on red because you would be crossing in front of oncoming traffic in most situations. California never has diferintiated between two way and one way streets on that, behind the times I guess. Growing up here it has never bothered me.

Here in Californication
you can only do it on a 1 way street
onto another 1 way street

Recently, they are using a FLASHING YELLOW light for some left hand turns
it means left turn using caution
similar to what i have seen in Toronto Canada

first you see GREEN for a left turn, then it changes to a Flashing Yellow, then turns Red just before the light turns Red & lets the side traffic flow
