Red Arrow Signal at Jefferson and Varner

After interested homeowners talked to a CHP officer at the Varner Barracks and the Jefferson Project construction office the traffic signal light at the corner of Jefferson and Varner has been changed from a red arrow, which is a full stop, to a solid red light, where you may make a right turn on red, after a full stop.

This will make our driving here easier. Previously, there was a red arrow signal at that intersection, causing confusion.

From the California Driver Handbook:

*Solid Red – A red signal light means “STOP.” You can make a right turn against a red light after you stop then yield to pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles close enough to be a hazard. Make the right turn only when it is safe. Do not turn if a “NO TURN ON RED” sign is posted.

* Red Arrow – A red arrow means “STOP.” Remain stopped until the green signal or green arrow appears. Do not turn against a red arrow. There may not be a “No Turn on Red” sign at the intersection, but that doesn’t mean that you can make a right on a red arrow. Drivers must wait until the arrow changes to make a right.
