This is a fun little tid-bit of information that I didn't know. There are some intersections in NY that you are allowed to legally turn left on red.

According to New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law, Section 1160, Article 28:

"You can make a left turn at a steady red light when you turn from a one-way road into another one-way road after you come to a full stop and yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic and pedestrians."

So basically, it you're stopped at a solid red light at the end of a one-way street and you are turning left onto another one way street, you are legally able to turn left on a solid red light. Well I'll be darned.
