Do you have to come to a complete stop at a red light when making a right hand turn with a yield sign?

this right hand turn was in a separate lane that turned away from the signal and had a yield sign. so i yielded, slowed down, but no one was coming so i rolled through it. after making the turn i got pulled over for "running a red light"

It is mandatory that you make a complete stop at the red light according to the traffic rules. When you make a stop especially when making a right turn, you will be in a better position to see any oncoming cars form the direction of the right turn.

You always have to stop on red, even if you can proceed after checking for on coming cars. Some red light signals do not allow that in some states or some areas of towns because of heavy or troubled traffic spots.
You can slow down and then continue on a yellow light however.

Yea at a stop sign or light where you can go right on red you have to come to a complete stop for atleast 3 seconds before turning or moving forward or else you are doing a rolling stop and if a cop catches ya more an likely give ya a ticket more than likely label it running it so they can get the bigger fine from you

if you had a yield sign for your turn off and there was no stop line painted on the lane, I would go to traffic court and fight it. check the not guilty box on your ticket, or they will not be able to clear you....and take along a picture of the intersection. This happened to me and I beat the ticket...
