Ask a trooper: What are the laws about cars, pedestrians and crosswalks?
By Jesse Grabow - Minnesota State Trooper
Question 1: If you are taking a right turn at a light and the light is red, are you supposed to stop? I ask because my daughter and I walk everywhere, and a few times we have almost been hit by cars turning right while we had the walk signal.
Answer 1: Yes, drivers coming upon a red light and turning right must stop.
