Is it legal to turn left on a red light on a one-way street after stopping and checking for traffic?

A driver may make a cautious right turn at a red light after coming to a complete stop, if the maneuver can be done safely, City Manager Mike Wildgen said. A cautious left turn may be made from a one-way street, if it intersects with another one-way street on which traffic only flows to the left and is controlled by a stop light. However, there are no intersections like this in Lawrence. For example, Wildgen said, turning left during a red light onto one-way streets like Kentucky or Tennessee is illegal.
