|A sign posted at the southeast corner of Haun Road and Newport Road (and across the street) tells drivers when right turns on a red light are not allowed.|
Drivers should remember to pay attention to the street signs and road regulations, including exceptions to the basic traffic rules.
At the intersection adjacent to Countryside Marketplace, some drivers neglect to read and obey all traffic signs. For instance, during the hours of 4-6 p.m. Monday through Friday, drivers are prohibited from making right turns on red lights from northbound Haun Road to eastbound Newport Road.
During this time, traffic is at its peak on Newport Road, making it difficult for a driver to determine when there is a big enough gap to turn right on a red light. Drivers making right-hand turns onto Newport should only do so on a green light. And if you're waiting on a red light at that corner and drivers behind you lay on the horn, remember that patience is a virtue and hope that they remember the same. Let cooler heads prevail.
Safe driving, everyone!
