Motorcycles/Red Lights

Motorcyclists and bicyclists could legally run red lights on occasion under a bill headed for Governor Pence.

Supporters say many traffic lights operate on sensors that detect metal and turn the light green.

But motorcycles and bikes don‘t have enough metal to trigger the lights, leaving cyclists waiting at an intersection until a car comes along to trip the sensors.

The bill would let bikers go through the red light if they‘ve been sitting there for two minutes and there‘s no traffic coming.
