Nebraska lawmakers are considering a bill that would let motorcyclists and bikers run red lights if no other vehicles are around and the stoplight doesn't turn green after two minutes.


  • Bill would let motorcyclists and bikers run red lights if no other vehicles are around
  • Would require that motorcyclists wait two minutes before continuing through an intersection
  • Reasoning behind the bill is that vehicles weighing less than 1,000 lbs. don't trigger traffic sensors

Columbus Sen. Paul Schumacher told the Transportation and Telecommunications Committee on Tuesday that the bill is needed because traffic sensors don't always pick up motorcyclists, leaving them waiting at the stop light for too long.


The Nebraska Sheriffs' Association and the city of Lincoln oppose the bill. The Nebraska Sheriffs' Association says the bill would be difficult to enforce.


Lincoln assistant city engineer Randy Hoskins says allowing cyclists to enter the intersection when the traffic light is red is a safety risk. He says he would prefer city workers fix problematic sensors.

Think they mite be half n half here n think some are just on a timer.
At times no one is at the light n it cycles like it's ona timer..:whistling::whistling:
Others when i get to it on a bike n just sit a few seconds it will change if no ones coming threw the otherway.....Mite just of hit it right on the timer too tho..:facepalm::facepalm:
Doesn't really matter I guess......Right on red........
N if i don't see a camera no where n it seems to be taking to long n there's absolutely no one in site..... I'll just go....:thumb:
With technology today.....u'd think they could come up with something better.....:thumb::thumb:
Why not have a dancing robot chic cop in a tiny winy red bikini directing traffic at all the lights.....:thumb::thumb::thumb:

here the largest city is only 200,000 so not too much traffic. i can go from one side to other in less than 20 min most hours of the day.just going through downtown Calgary Alta takes 2 hours and is just crazy there so i can see that if no other vehicles are at the intersection why wait 2 min.hope they pass it.

that would be nifty with all of the red light cams giving out tickets these days. i have a traffic light i have to run on almost a daily basis right outside my neighborhood. I'd go ballistic on a cop if they gave me a ticket for running a red light that didn't detect me.. no way i'm leaving my bike out in the middle of the road to press the pedestrian button unless there actually is traffic.

I second that ... Brave men/women who practice this. I'm sure in safe areas it would be easier to do .... As for the red light bill. I was caught in one of those light ... I think if a motorcyclist waits 2min or more let em go ....at his/her own risk. One can always opt for turning right then redirect from there.

running in red lights

In some places running in red light is already approved by the law and other states are thinking about it. Nebraska is thinking about a bill that would allow motorcycle drivers to run red lights under certain conditions. Opponents say the move is too great a safety danger. You can read more about the article.
