Iowa's law governing turns against red lights would be expanded under a bill approved Monday by the Iowa Senate and sent to Gov. Terry Branstad for his signature.

Under current state law, traffic is allowed to make a right turn from the right lane of traffic against a red light, or from the left lane on a one-way street to the left-most lane of traffic on another one-way street.

House File 372 changes the law to allow a right turn from another lane designated for right turns, or a left turn from another lane designated for left turns on another one-way street.

The bill also strikes a requirement that traffic turning left against a red light on a one-way street must turn into the leftmost lane of the other one-way street.

The Iowa Department of Transportation is supporting the bill, while the Iowa Bicycle Coalition is listed as undecided.
