I think it's Oregon where you can left-turn on red after stopping, and right-turn at a stop sign after slowing if you can't see any other traffic.

In September, 1968 in Florida, I was happy to be able to turn right on red. Florida was the first state to have right on red. Gas was about $0.359 per gallon in those days. The 1973 Oil Crisis had not occurred.
Times have changed.

The first eastern state, maybe. A number of western states, such as California, already allowed it. I can remember driving in Oklahoma City in 1961 along with a young lady - in her car, actually - and I stopped at a red light, then turned right. She screamed in horror and asked me what I thought I was doing. I explained it was legal to turn right on a red light in California and she loudly instructed me "it is NOT legal in Oklahoma!" Being a California born and raised driver, it never occurred to me it wasn't legal everywhere else.
