Here is this week's question:
When driving SE on Waples Mill Road, there is a stop light at the Oakton Road intersection. Is it legal is make a right turn on red at that three-way intersection? There is no sign prohibiting it, yet I never see any motorists turning right on red.
If there isn't a sign prohibiting a right turn on red, you can make a right turn on red. Clarification (1:19 p.m.): But there is no right turn from that direction. Treat it as going straight to stay on Waples Mill Road.
