Legally no, you can only turn legally on the green arrow. I am basing this on someone I know complaining about getting stopped by AMET for this very infractionWhat is the rule for turning into Playero in Sosua. The light coming from the direction of the Texaco (heading west) has a left turn arrow. Once the arrow goes off, but still a green light, are you allowed to make a left when no traffic is approaching?
If that is what they have, agreed.Straight up arrow = thru traffic only
Sleepy arrow (on its side) - indicates which way you may turn
That's how I see it.............
If the traffic police are giving tickets to those making a left on a solid green light when there is no oncoming traffic, I suspect that is a mistake in the interpretation of the law. But, this is he DR.Solid green - to me- is open season...... make the turn
The preliminary green is left arrow and some sort of green on the right hand side of it.... simultaneous
Then the advance left goes off.... green remains
Yes, I make the left when no oncoming traffic........
In this country the law is what the official says it is at the time they enforce it. I should be easy for Spanish speakers to ask the Amet person for clarification the next time you see them at that intersection and you park in the parking lot Just walk over to them and ask.
