Rolling Right Turns and No Right Turns On Red today added a new category of photo enforcement "Right Turn Cameras" to complement our growing list of "red light cameras" and "speed cameras." As of today, we have added 44 locations where illegal right turns are photo enforced from around the U.S. and will be adding many more as the data starts to trickle in from users.

We are starting to see a growing number of right turn cameras popping-up around the U.S. that use traditional red light camera technology to enforce illegal right turns. These new cameras are typically enforcing illegal right turns red or rolling right turns. Illegal rolling right turns are when a driver does not come to a complete stop before making the turn. Illegal right turns are when the driver makes a right turn on red regardless if they came to a complete stop. The fines in California are $159 and right turn cameras are also being used in Missouri $100), Tenessee ($100), Texas ($75), and Maryland ($75).

These right turn photo enforced intersections often surprise drivers because there are not very many intersections currently regulated. These intersections usually prevent drivers from turning right who might have limited visibility 0t might be moving at a speed that is unsafe. I still haven't figured out why rolling right turns is such a big deal that they have to be photo enforced. It's possible that bikers or pedestrians often are frequenting the sidewalks or streets and the cities want drivers to be extra cautious.
