Ah....so a red light is to be treated as a stop sign. Good to know, not that anyone here sticks to the rules.
I know it was brought in in Vancouver a few years ago but I'm not sure if it extends any further out than Vancouver proper. I had never given it any thought until now. CN
the new idaho yield law that california has (or will have whenever the governor signs it) actually wouldn't apply to a right-turn-on-red, even though in theory that's treated like a right-turn-on-stop-sign.
i actually got a little more irritated at this guy after a period of time when i read a bunch of posts on the bay area biking forum on reddit and bikeforums about his giving similar lectures to dozens of cyclists over the years, pulling them over on his motorcycle for anything from not stopping at a right-on-red to speeding to having headphones in or something. each time his diatribe included the notion that most people breaking the law in sausalito are from san francisco because it's a lawless, terrible place!
