Who's right (of-way)?

Who has the right of way in this situation? There's a north-south street crossing an east-west street. The north-south street has stop signs. The east-west traffic does not stop. A car (car #1) approaches from the south intending to turn LEFT (westbound), but has to wait for the east-west traffic to clear. While waiting, another car (car #2) pulls up from the north at the southbound stop sign, intending to go straight. So who goes first, 1 or 2? [more inside]

right turn on red from outside lane

I know it's legal to make a right turn on a red light after a complete stop (at least in CA). Does that apply when there are *two* right turn lanes? That is, in areas where there are two right turn lanes, I've never thought twice about making a right on red when I'm in the lane closest to the curb. But I've always been a bit skittish about making a right on red in the "outside" lane. Is a right on red (after a complete stop) legal from the "outside" lane as well?

state of illinois traffic ticket

A few months ago, I was stopped by the IL State Police, and I received a ticket. I need to go to court to obtain my drivers license back [not that I didn't go the DMV office, that day, and get a new one]. Nonetheless, I want to get it cleared up however; I've washed my ticket. Is there a website or helpful phone number to call - to either pay it or find my court date. Moreover, the ticket was issued in the Chicago district. Thanks for help!

Help me get to Merriweather Post Pavilion tonight

DC area filter: What is the best route to Merriweather Post Pavilion at rush hour, from the South? I'm headed to MPP for the Iron Maiden show tonight, plan to leave Fredericksburg at 4:30 PM. Are there any secrets to navigating traffic or parking? Is 95N to MD 32 to US 29 the best route at that time a day? I know it's DC at rush hour and every route will likely suck. Looking for whatever edge I can get via insider knowledge. Thanks!

Press Button to Cross

How does the button on the pedestrian crossing lights work? Does it actually send some sort of signal to the traffic lights, or is it just a psychological thing? It seems rather random timing-wise.
