‘No Left Turn’ restriction applies to weekdays only
Dear Street Smarts, Q: In Aptos, at the intersection of Soquel and Spreckles drives, there is a light with a 'No Left Turn' message that comes on Monday through Friday from 4-6 p.m. They must gave changed the signage recently as the sign says no left turn from 4-6 p.m. everyday. There never has been a problem turning left from Soquel onto Speckles on the weekend, so I am not sure why the change. Of course, I made a left turn on the weekend, noting that the no left turn light was not lit, only to be stopped by the California Highway Patrol. He pointed out the signs. I pointed out the unlit signal. We we both very confused. What is the story? Thanks, Jonathan Collins, Aptos Q: "The county has issued a work order to post a sign that indicates the left turn restriction will only be Monday through Friday," said Jack Sohriakoff, senior civil engineer for county public works.
