The Missouri House of Representatives has passed a bill that would let drivers turn left after stopping at a red light on a one-way street.
State Representative Chuck Basye’s bill would allow left turns during a red light when the vehicle is in the left-most lane on a one-way street turning onto another one-way street. Drivers would be required to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and other vehicle traffic.
The measure would still let state and local authorities ban left on red turns for safety reasons.
Basye, R-Rocheport, has filed this legislation in previous years.
The measure moves to the Senate for consideration.
