Left-Turn-On-Red (LTOR), the equivalent of North America's ubiquitous Right-Turn-On-Red, was introduced in Singapore in 1997. Presently, more than 40 LTOR traffic controls are in operation in Singapore. An evaluation study revealed a substantial reduction in peak-hour vehicle stopped delay as a result of LTOR operation. Overall, there was a small increase in accident occurrences.
