San Francisco explores banning right turns at red lights

Turning right on red in San Francisco may soon be a thing of the past in the name of safety.

Transportation officials this week discussed exploring eliminating rights on red, citing The City’s 14th traffic fatality this year as a call to action.

At Tuesday’s regular San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors regular meeting, board director Amanda Eaken expressed an interest in the agency exploring the ban, citing similar actions in Washington D.C. and in New York City.
