(3TV/CBS 5) - Arizona is ranked in the top five states for red light runners. However when you think of drivers running red lights, right hand turns don't usually come to mind.
[SPECIAL SECTION: Caught Misbehaving]
In the West Valley, in the cities of Peoria, Glendale and Sun City, Stanley Roberts observed drivers ignoring drivers education 101 where drivers are required to come to a complete stop before proceeding.
In comparison, Stanley Roberts showed drivers side-by-side, one turning right on a green light and one turning right on a red light. If it weren't for the difference in the lights it turn was identical. So basically, drivers are making right turns on red lights like they are looking at a green light. Not only is that illegal, it's dangerous and could account for many of the crashes.
The fine for running a red light in the city of Glendale is $212 but the cost in other cities may vary.
