Motorcyclists in Nevada are being granted access to legally run red lights, as many motorcycles are not detectable by traffic light sensors.
In many situations, motorcyclists will find themselves waiting long periods of time for a car to pull up and trip the sensor before they can proceed through the light. Under the new law, anyone riding a motorcycle, moped, bicycle, or tri-mobile can wait for two-traffic light cycles, and then legally run the light.
Many two-wheeled riders have already taken to doing this in Nevada, but now they don’t have to worry about getting a red light ticket.
The law is hard to enforce according to the Metro Police, as an officer much watch the entire process to be able to hand out a ticket, from the time the bike pulls up to the time it leaves.
This new law comes into effect on October 1, 2013.
