Just yesterday, my middle son, now 13 , was asking about right on red. He's extremely interested in driving now that he's taller than his 16 year old sister.
the entire ten minute drive home from his Civil Air Patrol meeting was spent with an oratory on why it should work right, the right way to do it , the wrong way to do it, why School busses don't, and the rarely talked about fact that you are not required to do so.
That fact was followed by why my wife will not right on red with her blind right eye making for poor depth perception. She just calmly waits. . .and yes , she's often met the irate next in line who feels she should.
So I reiterated to him what I had stressed to his sister when she was learning.
'' When in doubt ? . .DON'T ! ''
Whether it be pulling out into same direction traffic, across traffic to go the other way, changing lanes, guessing if the yellow light is long enough, etc.
