Cops to crack down on light violations

they are going to start writing tickets to people that make a right turn on red next to checkers. for the last 20+ years there was a sign just before the light saying right turn on red after full stop. they took that sign off the sign post and replaced it with a bus stop sign. in any other city when a change like that is made they put up signs letting everyone know it has changed. they could easily put a no turn on red sign by the light like the one they had on gen Stewart Dr and 84. even in Savannah when they added a new stop sign on the road that used to cut thru Armstrong state, they put flags on the sign to catch your attention. i guess this is just another way for Hinesville to make up for the city counsels spending.

In an older driver manual it stated that a right on red only applies to a circular traffic light. When I asked a deputy about that he said it means a round red light, not an arrow.

It would make more since to just have on or the other, not both.

i agree golf, but when you have been driving the road for years you don't look for sign that says right turn on red that was right there where the bus sign is. it is just common sense to put a sign up by the light to let people know of the change. unless of corse they are trying to make up for there lack of watching how they spend our local tax dollars

I wonder who took the sign down? the city or the state since this is a state law that a sign must be posted saying right turns allowed on red after a full stop.

That is a state hwy so the state is respsonsible for the road signs and traffice lights. The issue of red arrow and right turns was a problem with the new turn for the Fleming Shortcut but the light changed after several complaints and now it is two round red light instead of two red arrows.
