With little fanfare and a lot of stipulations, a law permitting drivers to turn left on red takes effect this weekend.Beginning after midnight tonight, while revelers celebrate the beginning of a new year, Maryland will join 42 other states that allow some form of left-on-red.Maryland's law lets drivers turn left at a red traffic signal -- after stopping -- but applies only to intersections of one-way streets where no left-turn restrictions are posted.The General Assembly approved left-on-red last spring in an effort to speed traffic, save gas, lessen congestion and reduce pollution.

State highway officials call their new "jug-handle" design for the Royer Road-Route 140-Meadow Branch Road intersection west of Westminster unique and innovative.But it looks illogical and expensive to some local residents, who say a traffic light would be simpler and cheaper.State Highway Administration engineers counter that through and left-turning traffic entering Route 140 from the two side roads isn't heavy enough to meet state standards for a signal.Local residents and SHA staff members are scheduled to discuss the intersection at a meeting set for 10 a.m. Sept.

Yesterday morning, the driver in the lane to the right of me decided to turn left - and did. All I saw was a flash of turquoise as it cut first in front of me and then in front of the car in the lane to the left. But, hey, that's OK - what's a little heart-jolting fright among your fellow drivers, when you have this very important need to make that left turn, right this minute. On Sunday afternoon, I was driving up I-95 and, this time, the flash was a beige one. Impatient with the seemingly brisk, 70-plus mph flow of traffic, Beige on Wheels weaved across the lanes, nosing into the smallest of openings that would propel him toward his destination, oh, maybe three minutes faster.

Mike Schaefer's name used to be seen on a lot of campaign signs in town during his spectacularly unsuccessful 2006 run for the U.S. Senate. Now, having recovered from his 1.3 percent showing in the Democratic primary, he'd just like to see his name in print addressing one serious problem. It's not quite in the league of global warming or world hunger, but it matters to him. "The law clearly and specifically provides that a vehicle on a one-way street can turn RIGHT or LEFT onto a one-way street if there is no traffic in the intersection," Schaefer wrote.

JUPITER, Fla. -- Alfonso Soriano waited until after he left the Washington Nationals' team bus yesterday morning and ducked inside the visiting clubhouse at Roger Dean Stadium to inform his manager that he wanted in the lineup. It wasn't enough. Frank Robinson needed to know that Soriano was willing to play left field. He caught Soriano's disappearing act once. This time, Robinson was ready to walk out. "He said he was willing to play left field," Robinson told reporters, "and that's what I wanted to hear."

In the past I have heard many complaints about many roads in Howard County. The chief complaint generators are Route 32, U.S. 40 and roundabouts wherever they are located. But based on the number of comments and questions received over the past few weeks, I believe Route 99 may nudge aside these roads to take its place as Howard County's worst. Joseph Schroen probably agrees with that assessment. Although he does not live on Route 99, he lives just off it, on Melba Road in Ellicott City.
