Rockville Wants Drivers to Make Right Turns on Red the Right Way

The City of Rockville is taking steps to make sure drivers know the right way to make a right turn after stopping at a red light.

The city is in the process of posting “Right Turn Yield on Red After Stop” signs at 10 intersections within the Rockville city limits where red-light cameras help to enforce the state law. The signs remind drivers that Maryland Law TA 21-202(h) requires a full stop before turning right at a red light.

New signage at northbound Seven Locks Road and Fortune Terrace advises drivers to yield after making a complete stop on a red light. Signs like this one are being installed at 10 intersections across Rockville. The intersection’s red light-camera system is in the grass right of way just before the sign.
