Can you turn left on a solid left arrow?

Seattle, WA |

I am constantly getting in arguments with my friend b/c she turns left on a solid left arrow in Seattle when no on traffic is coming. I have told her this is illegal and she refuses to believe me. So just want to settle it here.

I believe you can turn left on a blinking red arrow, correct?

No left turn on solid red arrow. A blinking red arrow means that you must yield to oncoming traffic.

It's been some time since I saw a blinking red arrow, as opposed to a blinking yellow arrow or just a blinking red, but the answer is that you cannot turn on a solid red arrow, period.
