AN ACT permitting vehicles to proceed straight through an intersection after stopping for a red light.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

1 Traffic Control Signal Legend; Steady Red Indication; Proceeding Through Intersection. Amend RSA 265:10, III(f) to read as follows:

(f) Except when the authority having jurisdiction over the intersection prohibits such a turn and a sign located at the intersection so indicates, vehicular traffic facing a steady circular red signal alone or a steady red arrow indication shall stop as required in this section and may after making such stop make a right turn if such right turn is lawful at that intersection. Drivers of vehicles facing a steady circular red signal shall stop as required by this section and may, after making such stop, proceed straight through the intersection subject to the rules applicable after making a stop at a stop sign, unless the authority having jurisdiction over the intersection prohibits such action and a sign located at the intersection so indicates. Under no circumstances may a driver make a left turn when facing a steady circular red signal. Such turning or proceeding vehicular traffic shall yield the right of way to pedestrians lawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to other traffic lawfully using the intersection.

2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect January 1, 2007.
