Question: How far ahead of time are you required to signal a turn and is there a time when drivers can legally turn left on a red light after stopping (like they do on right turns)?


Answer: For the first question, Minnesota law requires you to signal at least 100 feet before a turn. A turn would include a lane change or other change of course.
