ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A new driving law goes into effect in Missouri on Wednesday. If you drive through an intersection and the traffic signal turns red before you exit the intersection; you’re not breaking the law.
Chet Pleban turned red when he heard this so he got the green light to come in and explain why he’s so fired up.
This is the new law:
Permissive Yellow-Light Intervals (Section 304.120 RSMo.)
An ordinance must not prohibit the operator of a motor vehicle from being in an intersection while a red signal is being displayed if the operator of the motor vehicle entered the intersection during a yellow signal interval. This provision supercedes any local law, ordinance, order, rule, or regulation enacted by a county, municipality, or other political subdivision that is to the contrary.
