The Columbus Dispatch

It’s a quandary faced by drivers at a growing number of Columbus intersections.
The law says you can turn right on red, but a camera is watching to make sure you do it properly. Stop too late or for too short a time, and you risk a $95 ticket.
City officials are about to make the local law, which is different from state law, clearer for motorists.
Legislation going before the City Council today would spell out the rules for making right turns at camera-monitored red lights.
The change would apply to the 18 Columbus intersections where the city Department of Public Safety has installed cameras to catch people running red lights. Twenty more intersections will be added beginning in April.
