    I don’t like to get involved in these accident videos, but this happens to be a huge pet peeve of mine so I will weigh in.

    People treat right on red like a green light. Go at full speed without stopping at all. In actuality, it is meant to be treated like a stop sign. Come to a complete stop, look in all directions. If it is clear go.

    This issue gets magnified in the circumstances in this video, when the opposite traffic has a left green arrow. Because those people do indeed have a green light they go full speed and the red on right is going full speed as well to the exact same lane.

  • Cedarbridge says:

    And it gets even more dangerous when the vehicle making a right turn on red fails to turn into the lane closest to the curb. The combo right turn on red and change lanes to left lane is an everyday occurance.

  • Uncommon sense says:

    I almost got hit last week in this situation. I had green arrow, and the car opposite of me had to zip ahead into a right turn. They were fully stopped beforehand, just had to beat me to the turn.

    Don’t these idiots realize that the 5 seconds you saved by turning in front of me becomes half an hour wasted at the scene, plus bills and loss of car?
