[Tagging] "no right turn on red" tagging?

Ooh, I think Martin's suggestion would become a MAJOR project.

If I recall correctly, "right turn permitted on red after stop" is the
traffic law in the entire United States with the sole exception of New York
City. (Wikipedia says this has been the case since late 1978.)

Are you seriously suggesting that virtually every single traffic signal in
the United States be tagged with "right turn permitted on red after stop"
instead of tagging the few with "no turn on red"? How does this comport
with the notion of tagging what you see -- the only signs you'll see in the
USA are "no turn on red" (with the exception of NYC).

explicitly tag the positive case (right turn on red is allowed), rather
than assuming a default of yes and tag the negative cases.
