OPINION: Drivers make illegal turns on red light

There is a problem at the intersection of Contestoga and Union Hills drives in Sun City.

When going north approaching Union Hills Drive, there are two signs that state “No Turns On Red.” These signs are ignored by most drivers!

The reason for this is that the signs are placed in the wrong place! When a driver comes to a light that is red, unless a “No Turns On Red” is also visible at the light, the driver assumes it is legal to make the turn on red.

A simple fix is to add the sign at the light. This could prevent an accident or being ticketed for an illegal turn. The two existing signs should be removed and used elsewhere.
