All cars are At Fault. Car 1 should have continued to make turn if he is in the intersection once the vehicles have stopped due to red light. The other car should have slowed down or stop to allow Car 1 to make turn completely then continue.

There is even a sign to remind driver B of this obligation! Incidentally, driver B must ALSO yield to oncoming traffic that continues through a yellow or red light and may not legally proceed with the left turn until it is safe to do so.

When turning left on a green light and there is oncoming traffic do you wait in the intersection or at the stop line?

By law, you should wait at the stop line. In practice, if you know what you are doing, this practice will actually allow you to get through the intersection sooner than if you wait in the intersection in most cases due to the fact that acceleration requires time.In congested urban areas, convention may be to wait in the intersection instead of at the stop line. Deviation from this convention may prompt people to honk their horns at you. Following this convention may (but probably won't) get you a traffic fine.

Do you have to stop for traffic at a green light?

A green light on a traffic light set (in the UK) means automobile traffic is free to go. Walking out when commuter traffic lights are on green is a bad idea. Answer from @MunicipalSigns: In general: A steady GREEN traffic light means you can go through the intersection. You must yield to emergency vehicles and others as required by law. If you are stopped and then the light turns green, you must allow crossing traffic to clear the intersection before you go ahead. A GREEN arrow means you can safely turn in the direction of the arrow. There should be no on-coming or crossing traffic while the arrow is green. If you are turning left, a steady green traffic green light means you may turn but only when safe to do so. Oncoming traffic has the right-of-way. Be alert for signs that prohibit left turns. When turning right or left, watch for pedestrians crossing in front of your vehicle.
