Section 315.060 Traffic Control Signal Legend — Right Turn on Red Light, When.

[CC 1988 §14-356; Ord. No. 489 §1, 5-2-1966; Ord. No. 694 §1, 2-5-1973]
A. 
Whenever traffic is controlled by traffic control signals exhibiting different colored lights, or colored lighted arrows, successively one (1) at a time or in combination, only the colors green, red and yellow shall be used except for special pedestrian signals carrying a word legend, and said lights shall indicate and apply to drivers of vehicles and pedestrians as follows:
1. 
Green indication.
a. 
Vehicular traffic facing a circular green signal may proceed straight through or turn right or left unless a sign at such place prohibits either such turn. But vehicular traffic, including vehicles turning right or left, shall yield the right-of-way to other vehicles and to pedestrians lawfully within the intersection or an adjacent crosswalk at the time such signal is exhibited.
b. 
Vehicular traffic facing a green arrow signal, shown alone or in combination with another indication, may cautiously enter the intersection only to make the movement indicated by such arrow, or such other movement as is permitted by other indications shown at the same time. Such vehicular traffic shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to other traffic lawfully using the intersection.
c. 
Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian control signal as provided in Section 315.070, pedestrians facing any green signal, except when the sole green signal is a turn arrow, may proceed across the roadway within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.
2. 
Steady yellow indication.
a. 
Vehicular traffic facing a steady yellow signal is thereby warned that the related green movement is being terminated or that a red indication will be exhibited immediately thereafter when vehicular traffic shall not enter the intersection.
b. 
Pedestrians facing a steady yellow signal, unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian control signal as provided in Section 315.070 are thereby advised that there is insufficient time to cross the roadway before a red indication is shown and no pedestrian shall then start to cross the roadway.
3. 
Steady red indication.
a. 
Vehicular traffic facing a steady red signal alone shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then before entering the intersection and shall remain standing until a green indication is shown except as provided in Paragraph (b) of this Subsection.
b. 
The driver of a vehicle which is stopped as close as practicable at the entrance to the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then at the entrance to the intersection in obedience to a red signal, may cautiously enter the intersection to make a right turn but shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and other traffic proceeding as directed by the signal at the intersection, except that the State Highways and Transportation Commission with reference to an intersection involving a State highway, and the City with reference to an intersection involving other highways under its jurisdiction, may prohibit any such right turn against a red signal at any intersection where safety conditions so require. Such prohibition shall be effective when a sign is erected at such intersection giving notice thereof.
c. 
Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian control signal as provided in Section 315.070, pedestrians facing a steady red signal alone shall not enter the roadway.
4. 
If an official traffic control signal is erected and maintained at a place other than an intersection, the provisions of this Section shall be applicable except as to those provisions which by their nature can have no application. Any stop required shall be made at a sign or marking on the pavement indicating where the stop shall be made, but in the absence of any such sign or marking the stop shall be made at the signal.

(See Schedule IX of this Title.) Additional system locations shall be approved by the Board of Aldermen who may consider recommendations made by the Chief of Police. Recorded images from a single camera unit shall constitute sufficient basis for a notice of violation if alone or in combination they clearly show that the traffic control signal for an intersection is emitting a steady red signal for the direction of travel of a motor vehicle, the motor vehicle present in the intersection and the license plate and license number of the motor vehicle.

3. 
If there is more than one (1) owner of the motor vehicle, a notice of violation may be completed and addressed to any or all of them and such owner shall be jointly and severally liable hereunder.
4. 
The notice of violation shall direct the owner to respond by paying the fine specified in the notice of violation or providing a sworn statement of applicability of one of the justifications for the presence of the owner's vehicle in the intersection set forth in this Section prior to the due date stated in the notice of violation. The City's Automated Traffic Enforcement Division may issue additional notices as it sees fit.
5.

The letter shall also set forth a new due date for the payment of the fine incurred pursuant to this Section. If the statement provides, in the manner required, the name, address and operator's license number of any person renting or leasing the motor vehicle at the time the violation occurred, then the notice of violation shall be withdrawn, a letter to that effect shall be sent to the owner by the City and a new notice of violation shall be issued to the identified person together with a copy of the identifying statement, which person shall be liable hereunder as if any owner.
9. 
In lieu of completing a notice of violation, the Police Department may send a warning notice to the owner if the system location was established within one (1) week of the violation or if the reviewing officer determines that the recorded images are inconclusive or that it is more likely than not that a justification applies to the violation.
E. 
Fine. Notwithstanding any other provision of the City Code of Ordinances, the fine for a violation of public safety at an intersection shall be one hundred dollars ($100.00) and under no circumstances may a person be imprisoned for such an infraction.

Warning Signs. An automated photo traffic enforcement system may be identified by advance warning signs posted at entrances to the City and/or at specific system locations, if the Board determines that such signs will enhance the efficacy of the system.

2. 
Any person who submits a false sworn statement in response to a notice of violation, or any subsequent notice, may be prosecuted and be subject to the general penalty provisions set forth in the Municipal Code.
