Can you make a U-Turn on Red?

My friend told me you are allowed to make a U-Turn on a red light, he said his mother and the DMV Lady told him it is legal....I have never heard of this in my life.

Question: I have noticed many motorists that make U-turns at intersections while the light is still red. Is this legal in Arizona, or in the Phoenix area?

Answer: A motorist is allowed to make a U-turn on a red light if the vehicle does not enter over the crosswalk or stop bar while proceeding into the U-turn. No U-turns are allowed at intersections if signs are posted "No U-turn on red" in the state of Arizona.

For example, the only motor vehicle that may have the physical capabilities to perform a U-turn at most intersections on a red light that would not enter the crosswalks or cross the stop bar would be a motorcycle.

This question was answered by Sgt. Mike Ferrara, of the Surprise Police Department's Support Services Unit. Every other week, members of the agency will answer public-safety questions. Send questions to lily.leung@arizonarepublic.com.


It is however, illegal in florida no matter what according to anything I've found. You can look it up but they may have a provision similar to this. However, it's pretty hard to not disrupt a crosswalk or stop bar(line on the ground).

Yeah, I read the florida code. It is illegal to make a turn at any red light without stopping first. Also it is illegal to enter an intersection at or during a red light without the intention of turning right unless otherwise specified by signage. If it is just a stop sign without a line on the ground I guess you could claim it doesn't apply but otherwise they are lying or just wrong.

Yea, my buddy is a moron. But he said his DMV ***** that was with him said you could. I'll ask a cop friend in the near future. I didn't believe him at all though.

I have a question (temp hijack):

If you're at the intersection of a one way street thats going to your left, can you turn left on red if it's safe? I've heard yes and no.

Yes, you can turn left on reds for one way-one way streets. Tha's in Arizona though, idk about other states. Cause we're allowed to turn right on reds and i'm pretty sure that's illegal in california if i remember correctly
