LAUREL, Md. — As the City of Laurel comes closer to activating a new red-light camera on Van Dusen Road near Route 198, police are also looking at new traffic signs that will warn drivers about a specific type of turn and its potential to give them a ticket.

In Maryland, right turns are legal on red lights, but only after the driver comes to a complete stop before the stop line. Maryland Annotated Code
