Answer From Dear Cop
As per Section 129(1) of the Motor Vehicle Act, a driver of a vehicle approaching a red light must cause the vehicle to come to a complete stop at the marked stop line, or if there is no stop line at a marked crosswalk, or if there is no marked cross walk stop before entering the intersection. A driver must not cause the vehicle to proceed until the traffic control signal instructs the driver that he or she is permitted to do so.
It is legal to make a left turn from a two way street onto a one way street on a red light provided that you have come to a complete stop first, you have your left turn indicator on and you have yield to all traffic that is proceeding through on a green light.
