Huh??
I'm just curious. How will the driver read "No right turn on red"? There is no sign for that.

California allows drivers to take test in 31 languages other than English (Driver License and Identification (ID) Card Information)

A cop should not be giving someone ticket for not knowing English.

Non-english applicants has to answer additional test for sign board reading. As far as I know, 12 more in CA in addition to 36 standard to make sure that even if someone does not know English (s)he understands what is written. A non-English driver is supposed to understands all the signs (over sixty) including "No right turn on red" (Sign as well as the words):
- Traffic Signs
- Red/White regulatory signs
- White regulatory signs
- Highway Construction and Maintenance Signs (Orange)
- Guide signs (Green/Blue)
- Hazardous Signs (Red, Yellow)
- Warning Signs

By taking Sign test (12 questions) CA tries to make sure that other language drivers understand Sign. This has independant pass marks, does not get combined with main (36 questions).

Default What about the violations

Non - English speaking or not isn't it the responsibility of the driver of the vehicle to drive following the rules of the Road. Why make a U-turn where it is not allowed. Why turn when it is written NO turn on Red. Is it the fault of the sign that you cannot read English.

US is an English speaking nation although people from all parts of the word live here. We have to abide by the common language which is English and not Spanish. The DMV cannot post sign in hundreds of languages that different people speak.

If the driver violated the law he must be given a ticket unless it is his first offence when a warning would be sufficient. Rules are meant to be followed.

Default Able to read English or not

Able to read English or not should not constitute an offense. Not able to read a road sign and erring on that basis is an offense. All the regulatory and warning road signs have a symbol associated with the text (Octogon for stop 'U' for U-turn, curve ahead.....). Only the advisory signs (exit signs and street signs) have English names and no signs.

As far as "No right turn on red" is concerned, there could be text only (http://www.safetysystemshawaii.com/s...a_18x24_hi.jpg) or sign only (http://www.trafficsignstore.com/R10-11c.jpg) or both.

For "text only" cases also drivers of other languages must honor. The sign test has several "text only" questions. I think, DMVs are making effort, so that other language driver also must know all the signs and texts - at least by taking exams.

This statemet has narrow sprit of English Only Movement (English-only movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), where as US is much broader (Languages of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Many states and citizens won't agree.

"NO right turn on Red" can be thought of as an image. Whenever we read anything, we do not actually read the spelling of the word, but we look at the image the words form. That is the reason we sometimes have difficult when the letters are not legible as the image does not map to anything in our permanent memory. humans or any animals recognize through visual stimulii, not reading. Think more on this, it is interesting to the solutions that come out of it.

First, listen to this looking at the video.

this is ridiculous. It doesn't really matter whether english or anything else is the main language here. As long as the driver is driving properly and follows the road signs properly, why should the police care whether the driver can read? Maybe the driver just memorizes everything, maybe the driver knows it by advanced electronic devices, telepathy, or miracle, whatever, who cares?
