House Rejects Left-On-Red Proposal Near State Legislature

Posted June 1, 2005

— A bill to make turning left at some red lights legal failed in the General Assembly.

Critics argue such turns would be unsafe for disabled pedestrians.

Others complained the pilot project appeared as though it benefited only lawmakers.
