For many of us it has been a long time since we were tested on them. Additionally, rules have changed over the years and vary from state to state.
- Can you make a right turn on red?*
- Can you turn left on red at an intersection comprised of two one-way streets?*
- Do you have to yield to a pedestrian who is entering a crosswalk when you have a green light?*
The answer is maybe. It depends on your state and local laws. The good news is you do not have to comb through dozens of pages and laws to figure it out.
