What is running a red light?
A vehicle must come to a complete stop at the stop line or, if there is no stop line, prior to the crosswalk and before entering the intersection, and remain stopped as long as the signal is red. Unless a sign prohibits turning on red, after coming to a complete stop, you may turn right or you may turn left from a one way street to another one-way street. When turning on a red signal, you must yield the right of way to pedestrians and all other traffic. If a vehicle proceeds into the intersection after the signals have turned red, pictures and/or video are then taken. A motorist in the intersection when the signal changes to red (waiting to turn left, for example) is not a red light runner.
