Nevada State Motorcyclists will Soon be Able to Legally Run Red Lights

The motorcyclists I’ve met always seem to complain about the same basic things, like how some drivers don’t pay attention and thus they have to always be extra careful, or how their lane-splitting methodologies are frowned upon by some, despite not really affecting them directly in any way. To these we then add the numerous region-specific problems, like the one regarding traffic lights that some US states have faced.

The problem arises when said set of traffic lights is of more advanced conception, and features sensors used to determine the most efficient way of dispatching all of the stopped vehicles.

Motorcycles, however, don’t trigger the sensors, as they’re either too light or too small, and riders are often faced with huge waiting times as they wait for a more generously-sized vehicle to pass by and set things in motion. One way some states have thought about resolving this is to allow people on motorcycles, bicycles, mopeds, and tri-mobiles to pass through run red lights legally under certain conditions.

Several states have adopted these new rules, and the latest to do so is Nevada, where as of October 1, operators of the aforementioned types of vehicles will be forced to wait to go through two light cycles, then pass legally even if the light is still red. Other places where this has been adopted are Illinois, Oklahma, Wisconsin, Tennessee and Nebraska.
