Filter left on red light

Comment 8th July 2010

At traffic light controlled intersections to be allowed to filter left on a red light. This is the equivalent of Right on Red in USA and other countries. Priority is given to pedestrians and all other traffic. Responsibility rests on the driver for safety.

The assumption should be that Left on Red is permitted at ALL intersections. Where it is not permitted a mandatory sign would be placed.

Why does this matter?

This would greatly improve the flow of traffic.

Pollution would be reduced by cars not sitting at lights for extended periods.

By placing the onus of safety back on the driver a culture of responsible driving will be enhanced
