What is the law concerning turning left or making a u-turn while a red left turn arrow is flashing?

Ken Little

A motorist turning left who does not have a green arrow has to yield to oncoming traffic, said N.C. Department of Transportation spokeswoman Jennifer Garifo.

Below is a link to the N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles’ driver’s handbook, which contains rules of the road. The “Traffic Signals” section contains the rules for navigating an intersection. Other sections in Chapter 4 provide information on who has the right-of-way at four-way stops and at intersections that aren’t signed.
