Turning right on red is tricky

When driving, there are a lot of things you need to consider when turning right on a red light:

  • Is there a vehicle going straight?
  • Is there a vehicle turning left?
  • Is there a cyclist in your blind spot, or crossing either of the crosswalks?
  • Is there a pedestrian crossing either of the crosswalks from either side?
  • Is the light about to turn green? If yes, is there a pedestrian about to cross, or a cyclist in your blind spot?

It seems like a huge amount of factors to consider.
