PVPD Says No Change in Right Turn on Red Light Law

2/1/24

The Prescott Valley Police Department has been receiving questions from the community about alleged changes to the law regarding right turns.

An unknown person posted on social media about a “new law” going into effect January 1 of this year prohibiting right turns on a red light. This information has gone viral and caused confusion in the community.

PVPD wants to assure everyone there has been no change to the law regarding right turns on a red light. Unless specifically posted that a right turn is prohibited on a red light, Prescott Valley drivers turning right at a red light are expected to stop at the light, and can then make the turn once it is safe to do so.
