I've noticed in the past couple of years that this is starting to be a big problem in and around LA area. People are not in the intersection while waiting to turn left, and as the light turns yellow and consequently red, they will come from behind the pedestrian crossing lines and finish their left turn anyway--very late and usually on the red, because my side of the light won't turn green until theirs have turned red (I am talking about 3 to 4 cars turning, so the last 2 are not in the intersection and turn on red)

In instances like these I wish more cops were paying attention and started to give tickets to those turning left on red because they don't want to wait for another red light. It's as if you're expected to pay attention to how many cars want to turn left and not to the color of the traffic light these days.

Correct me if I'm wrong here folks, but that is the actual precedent currently in place.
