Bill Number: 
HB 402
Bill Purpose: 
Allows left turn on red down a one-way street
Date of Vote:

My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HB 402, introduced by Representative Chuck Basye (Republican - District 47) is a simple bill that allows one to make a left hand turn on a red light when turning onto a one-way street.  It seems pretty obvious that this makes sense, as the conditions in such an intersection are essentially the same as they are when one turns right on red.  While I am not aware of any intersections I routinely drive through that this would apply to, I like the concept in principal and as such voted yes.  It passed.
