Anyone excercise this option yet?
"Many drivers and pedestrians often complain about cyclists running red lights. But in Virginia, the practice is now legal.Many lights take longer than 120 seconds to change
If an officer is sitting on your left or right or any other larger "object" and the light is on the "approach to change" function, it will change.
BTW, I've never heard of a 120second rule. Is it local, state or federal and could you post a link?
Exercised it on the 1st of July actually. Sat on US50 westbound waiting to turn left onto US17 near Paris. Waited through 2 light cycles and then turned left when it was clear. Oh I was sitting at the light with 10 other motorcycles in tow so the light just must have been broke. :shrug:Anyone excercise this option yet?
I had been using the old right turn, up the road and U-turn to get around the problem but was wondering if many folks were actually using the 120 second rule. I do believe I will use it in the future but will be very selective about when and where.
