A reader asked Orange County Register “Behind the Wheel” columnist Michael Mello to clarify the meaning of signs reading, “No turn on red light when children are present.”
 
Who did the columnist turn to for the answer?
 
Sgt. Mike Foster of APD’s traffic division.
 
“If the children (17 years and younger) are on another corner, or crossing in the opposite crosswalk, then the signs do not apply,” Foster told the newspaper.
