Why is there a “no turn on red” sign on the signal lights at Waterford in Leland but not with other lights in the area?

The Waterford light in Leland is a triple right intersection, says N.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Jennifer Garifo.

“Due to geometrics issues and the angle that the driver turns at, the driver’s line of sight is blocked by two cars, making a right turn on red dangerous. This is why drivers cannot make a right turn on red at this intersection,” Garifo says.

    I was wondering why they don’t have reds lights farther down 17 where the winnabow sign is? That’s become even more dangerous than before due to all the added traffic. Isn’t that a area in need for the redlight?

    this intersection has been changed to a 2 lane intersection and the no turn on red has been removed.

    They just changed this intersection to two lanes so you can turn right on red now.
