RIGHT-TURN-ON-RED: CURRENT PRACTICES AND STATE-OF-THE-ART
Right-turn-on-a-circular-red traffic signal (RTOR) is a practice which has gained wider acceptance. However, there is still disagreement on whether, where, and how RTOR should be implemented. To determine past experiences with RTOR, a literature review and a survey of state and city practices was conducted. The state-of-the-art summary contains information on accidents, delay, capacity, level of service, gap acceptance, and signing. The data collected to date indicate that RTOR does not significantly increase accidents but does reduce right-turn delay.
