SPRINGFIELD | Motorcycle riders could go straight on red under a proposal rumbling through the General Assembly. In action Wednesday, the Illinois Senate voted 43-12 in favor of allowing the driver of a motorcycle to proceed through a red light that fails to turn green within a "reasonable period of time." Motorcycle rights groups say motorcycle riders can sometimes get stuck at a red light for several light cycles because the lighter weight of the two-wheel vehicles won't trigger sensors that cause stoplights to change at some intersections. full article at link: http://www.nwitimes.com/news/state-and-regional/illinois/f0453db0-d739-5cec-82e2-c100180c679f.html I can't possibly see how this is considered 'sensible'. How will they determine a 'reasonable amount of time'? Why would it be difficult for a motorcyclist to turn right on the red? What about bikers who are impatient and decide to blow the light prior to a 'reasonable amount of time'? What about inclines which do not allow the driver on the green or the biker going straight on a red to make it safely across the intersection at posted speeds? Why can't they adjust the sensors for motorcycle weights? What about scooters? will they be included in this too? Do motorcyclists get to go straight on Red in any other states? Illinois is already a no helmut state. This seems incredibly dangerous to me. Thoughts?
