  no turn on red (duh..)

Driving in the USA is different from driving in Europe. When you are waiting for a red light, indicating that you want to turn right, and somebody is honking his horn. Donīt get angry. With the exception of New York city it is allowed to turn right on red. Just make a full stop first and have a look if you can go. The other traffic, which has the green light, has the right of way.
Sometimes signs indicate: no turns on red. (looks very odd in our eyes, because why is it red??) It just means you canīt turn right here unless the light is green.
