Question: Can I turn right on a red signal if I am on the second lane from the right that allows right turns?

Answer: No.

According to Thelma Rasmus, driving instructor for Broussard Driving School in Houston, in order to legally turn right on red, you must be on the farther right lane. It is illegal to turn right on the second lane if the traffic signal is red.

Rasmus said drivers must adhere to traffic signs that prohibit turning on a red traffic light.
