Tell me, did you get to your destination that much sooner by not stopping at the red light before you turned right? Did you happen to notice I was almost on top of you and that I had the right of way because of the green light? Did you hear my brakes squeal as I slammed my foot down as hard as I could to not hit you? The law is very clear. You may make a right turn AFTER you come to a COMPLETE stop and then, ONLY if there are no oncoming autos or pedestrian traffic. Stop means stop. No other traffic or pedestrians means just that. So please, I don’t want to ruin my day or yours, obey the rules, stop and then go, only if you can do so safely.
