In Oregon, when can you turn left at a red light?


In Oregon, unless signs indicate otherwise, you may turn left on a steady red signal, red bicycle signal, or even a red arrow signal to turn onto a one-way street. You must first stop and yield to pedestrians and traffic before you turn. Note: The laws on this are different in many other states. Many states prohibit turning on a red arrow. Some states prohibit left turns on red from a two-way street onto a one-way street. Still other states prohibit left turns on red altogether. When traveling out of Oregon, always check the local traffic laws. [Traffic Signals, 1. Signs and Traffic Signals, Oregon Driver Manual]
