LEFT TURN ON RED (LTOR) SCHEME
separator
What is the Left Turn On Red (LTOR) scheme?
 
The LTOR scheme is implemented at selected junctions. It allows motorists on a minor road to turn left onto the main road during a red signal when it is safe to do so.
How do motorists identify an LTOR junction?
 
Motorists will see these signs:
a) "Left Turn On Red" sign on the side road;
b) "STOP and GIVE WAY To Pedestrians And Main Road Traffic" on the side road; and
c) "Watch Out For Traffic From Side Road" sign on the main road.

Pedestrians will see the "Beware of Turning Vehicles" sign.

How does the LTOR scheme work?
 

If you are turning left to the main road, you may turn left safely during a red signal provided you:
  • Stop at the red light;
  • Give way to pedestrians crossing at the junction;
  • Give way to vehicles coming from the right; and
  • Proceed only when the way is clear.

If you are on the main road driving straight through the junction, you have the right of way over drivers who are using the LTOR scheme. However, do look out for errant motorists from the minor road when you are approaching the junction.

How does the LTOR scheme benefit motorists?
 
The LTOR scheme clears the left-turning traffic queue faster. You can save travel time as you can still turn left when the situation is safe to do so during the red signal.
Where can the LTOR scheme be implemented?
 

The LTOR scheme can be found at junctions with these features:

  • Relatively low pedestrian volumes crossing the side road.
  • No U-turning traffic along the main road to avoid conflict with the left-turning vehicles.-
  • A clear view of the surrounding traffic. The LTOR scheme will not be located near road bends or junctions with nearby obstructions.
