Definitely not legal in TX.
You are never allowed to run a red unless perhaps you have to do so to get out of the way of an emergency vehicle.
TX law says you must wait until another car comes up and triggers it.
I will wait a bit, then turn right on red (legal here) and u-turn and get back on track.... though I have run MANY before.... but the only time I've had one NOT trip for me on the weebr was during a torrential downpour... guess the water interfered with things?

"This old engine has a nickels-and-dimes sound to it. As if there were a lot of loose change flying around inside. Sounds awful, but it's just normal valve clatter. Once you get used to that sound and learn to expect it, you automatically hear any difference. If you don't hear any, that's good." -- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
