Anyone who owns a car or home is required to have an insurance policy. For your vehicle, you’re insured so that in the event of an accident or other loss, the policy will cover the cost of the vehicle, your medical expenses and the expenses incurred by the other party if you’re found to have been at fault in a collision.

The answer? The Oklahoman’s Don Gammill says yes. However, you must first be sure that there are no signs that specify that you cannot do a right-turn on red from that lane in that location.
