    Chicago Drivers Are Getting A Bit More Leeway On Running Red Lights
    Today looks like it was a win for both advocates of safe streets and opponents of nickel-and-dimed revenue generation. The city announced that it would raise the grace period for cars passing through a red light-to the joy of Chicago drivers-while keeping that grace period at a safe and reasonable length-to the joy of Chicago pedestrians who enjoy remaining in one piece while crossing an intersection.

    Unnecessary use of the horn is a traffic violation.

    Not turning right on red isn't.

  • when the light is red, and there is no "no turn on red sign", by law you must abide the same rules a stop sign has. you must come to a complete stop, wait two seconds and proceed to make a right turn when it is safe to do so....

    when the light is red, and there is no "no turn on red sign", by law you must abide the same rules a stop sign has. you must come to a complete stop, wait two seconds and proceed to make a right turn when it is safe to do so.

    this was explained to a friend that got a ticket doing a rolling stop at an intersection and making a right turn on red that had no sign prohibiting turning on red.

    the officer stated that he had to come to a complete stop before making the turn and the same rules that apply to a stop sign apply to making a right turn on red.

    this also, counts for red light cameras if you do not come to a complete stop and make a right turn you will be issued a ticket, but if you do come to a complete stop before turning you would not receive a ticket.

    Study: Red light cameras make Chicago streets safer; some may be relocated
    Chicago's red light cameras help make driving safer in Chicago, according to a study released Monday by the Northwestern University Transportation Center. The report found "significant safety benefits" and recommended the continuation of the program. The study recommended that the city extend the time allowed before issuing a ticket once the light turns red.

    Don't speed, don't run red lights and you won't get a ticket and it won't cost you anything. The only people who complain are those that get tickets, and only those who break the law get tickets.

    Slow down, save lives.

    "I got hit on 87th Dan Ryan because I didn't make a complete stop before I made a right-hand turn."

    Was this a surprise?
