Today’s #BillOfTheDay comes to us courtesy of Rep. Deborah Dixon. HB2 would allow for motorcycles to run red lights if they don’t trip the signal sensor and if no one else is around.
Here’s the revision they’re asking for
(e) When a motorcycle is the sole occupant of a lane and does not cause the sensor to trigger a green light, the motorcycle may cautiously enter the intersection to proceed through the intersection or make a turn, provided that the motorcycle shall yield the right-of-way to pedestrians lawfully within an adjacent crosswalk and to other vehicular traffic lawfully using the intersection. A motorcycle shall not make a turn under this subsection if a sign stating “No Turn On Red” is in place prohibiting a turn.
I mean, seriously, what could possibly go wrong with giving the legal right for motorcyclists to ignore red lights?
Congrats Rep. Dixon, you’ve authored our #msleg . . . . #billoftheday!
