Theres a set of traffic lights similar setup to that near where I live. Except that the filter light is left pointing instead of right. Confuses the hell out of some people they'll sit there because the light is red but the filter arrow is lit green but they sit there and sit there.

I've seen that kind of setup a few times.

I didnít read up on the accident, but looks to me as if it is green straight on and a red RH turn Ö nothing unusual about that setup is there?? or am I missing the point??

Can you go back and take a closer photo of the traffic lights next to the turn right lane where they're red and green.

My guess is all the greens are for the traffic to go forward and the one with red light is the filter traffic light (it has a blue turn right icon under the green light section) You can not proceed and turn right unless that is green (should be a green right arrow light anyway)

From the look of that image, the lights on the right have a filter, which was red when you took the picture. I hate these, you can be arriving at the lights and see green but not realise that it's not the light for your lane.

Bloody dangerous IMO, but fairly common practice.

by the look of it ,the red light is for those turning right (DONT TURN)and the filter goes straight on letting traffic that are going straight ahead go first and then the filter comes on while the traffic coming the other way is stopped (obv) ,did wvm turn in front of you ??if so i bet hes seen the green (for straight ahead only)and turned right when he shouldnt have?is this right ??pic is a bit sketchy so i think that seq is right ?

The ones near to me don't have the amber stage, They go from Red, straigh to green arrow on the filter lane.
