Left turn on red arrow
Twice now I've been honked at while waiting to turn left in a left turn lane with a red left arrow. Aren't you supposed to stop until the arrow turns green? Or am I misunderstanding?
Yep, go left on red if no one is coming.
The only weird spot for that is what mgpilot mentioned.
I always feel so illegal when I run that straight!
You should feel illegal 'cause it is. There's no such thing as straight on red.
Same intersection - heading east and taking the left turn into C'sted. When I first moved to STX i was warned so many drivers blow through that left turn that I shouldn't even stop on red for fear of being rear ended. I've been honked at many times for even slowing down for that turn.
Left on red = legal.
Left on red arrow = illegal.
Take the rules in most statesup north about right on red and reverse them.
Then ignore what I just said because everyone goes left on the red arrows if no one is coming and I've never seen this enforced. One of the things I like about the VI, we use stoplights to prevent accidents but we don't blindly let a machine prevent us from doing something that is clearly safe (like go left on a red when no one is coming). Actually, IME, on STX when the lights are out traffic flows better as people here just figure out how to make it work.
