You can turn right on a red stop signal if the way is clear. Road conditions are generally good though you may encounter the odd pot hole. San Juan is very comgested and you’re likely to spedn some time here sat in traffic jams. Also in San Juan they run a bus lane system in some streets where the left lane is reserved for buses only. Its identified by diamond-shaped white signs painted on the lane at regular intervals and you should never drive in this lane.
