Learning to live with little known laws
Many motorists, new to Ruston, do a double take when they see someone make a left turn on a red light at certain intersections in Ruston.
Those turns are perfectly legal, if certain basic traffic rules are obeyed, Ruston Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Curtis Hawkins said.
"Many people have asked if it is legal to turn left at a red signal when they are traveling on a one-way street and are turning onto a one-way street," Hawkins said. "The answer is yes, with certain restrictions."
