DC Banning Many Right Turns on Red
“No right turn on red” signs will start going up in dozens of new D.C. locations starting Feb. 19, as long as weather permits.
The District Department of Transportation is banning right turns on red at about 100 new intersections throughout the city, and the signs will be installed over the next six months by the end of July.
The effort supports Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Vision Zero Initiative that was launched in 2016, aimed at eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries in the nation’s capital by 2024.
