Gloucester Township Police Traffic Safety Tip: No Turn on Red

Gloucester Township Police Traffic Safety Tip: No Turn on Red
The Gloucester Township Police Department issued the following tip as part of its ongoing traffic safety tips of the month: 

Right Turn on Red

Unless a “No Turn on Red” sign is posted, New Jersey law 39:4-115, authorizes a right turn on a red light after a motorist comes to a full stop and checks for traffic. A motorist must yield to all oncoming traffic and pedestrians before turning right at a red light.  Difficult to see vehicles, such as bicycles and mopeds, may have a green light, so it is important for a motorist to be aware of their presence. Always use a proper turn signal at least 100 feet before making any turn and cancel the signal after completing the turn.

Additional information can also be found at  www.njmvc.gov or by contacting the Gloucester Township Police Traffic Services Bureau at 856-374-5715 or by email at police@gtpolice.com.
