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.

This is a WTOP alert by Michelle Basch.

I can understand when you are texting, emailing  and making a right turn you do not get a chance to see if there is a pedestrian in the Walk Way.....Endre

when the bus hit two women on the mall as it made a right turn on red it highlighted the seriousness of the issue!

We have a lot of no right turn on red lights here, mainly on the off ramps from the freeway.

Good morning Roy - when New York State passed right on red in the 70's it excluded New York City which still stands today.

Good morning Roy.  This always makes for some confusion initially, but hopefully, it will make everyone safer.

Roy, this is quite interesting, and must have something to do with the amount of traffic?   We just saw some side streets in Aurora increase the speed limit 5 mph.

Hello Roy, I hope I remember this next time I am in D.C., I got so use to turning on right most time.
