(14) Every driver approaching a traffic control signal showing one or more green arrow indications only or in combination with a circular red or circular amber indication and facing the indication may proceed only to follow the direction shown by the arrow. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 144 (14).
The way I understand subject to, this means that when I am at an intersection with traffic signals showing a green left-arrow and a red circle, I may not turn right under any circumstance.Exception Ã¢Â€Â“ turn
(19) Despite subsection (18) and subject to subsection (14), a driver, after stopping his or her vehicle and yielding the right of way to traffic lawfully approaching so closely that to proceed would constitute an immediate hazard, may,
(a) turn to the right; or
(b) turn to the left from a one-way street into a one-way street,
without a green indication being shown. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 144 (19).
Am I correct?
I only ask because I see people turning right in this circumstance all the time (which I know means nothing legally). I don't execute a turn myself in this scenario, and have had the guy behind me get all antsy...
Thanks for your input.
