The school contacted a parent and administrators are addressing the issue, he said in an email to TBMS parents.

Q: Is it legal for somebody to make a right turn when you're making a left turn on a left arrow? A: Thank you for this question. The short answer is yes, a vehicle at an intersection may make a right hand turn, as long as there are no signs that prohibit right turn on red, and the lane of traffic is clear (yield to oncoming traffic). If you are talking about oncoming traffic that is planning to turn right onto the same road that you wish to turn onto, since you have the green turn arrow, they will have a red light and must wait until you have cleared your turn.

Q: What do police officers do when you pull over someone who doesn't speak English? A: Great question. In law enforcement it is essential to provide fair and consistent service to all members of our community, whether they speak English, a different language, or has a hearing impairment. Effective communication is critical to the protection of individual's constitutional rights and personal safety of all involved. We also must be conscious of the sensitivities related to victim privacy, while maintaining transparency with our community.
