Hey dude, what don't you understand in the word "enough"?



The "other" guy kinda understood and calmed himself down and brought some intelligent and "valid" arguments to the "debate" to date...what about you? Can't you do the same and give us a break or you're too immature for that?


Geez...

Seasoned Dragon Slayer here. There are plenty of challenge in the technical aspects of riding the dragon without leaving your lane...with that said here I am caught in the act by killboy...a long time ago...my excuse is as follows

Those are the "Locals" driving their pickup truck...I am very observant, they don't call me dilbert for nothing. They did pull over and let me by.
The line is a reference...just because it's dotted does not mean it's ok and safe to pass.

I think some guys need to go ride in Europe and see how it's done.

I found a couple on this thread I'll never ride with.

Good luck with that one. That is the same argument that I used when I fought mine in Oregon. Failure to obey a traffic control device. The Judge is a rider and reduced he fine but did not dismiss it.

I don't have the exact quote or line of regulation, but I used to live in NY, and the technicality is that you have to determine it is a malfunctioning traffic control device, then you treat it as a stop sign, and proceed when safe to do so.

Part of that includes not doing it in front of a cop, because I can't imagine a cop NOT at least pulling you over, so it doesn't look like he is ignoring such blatant red light running.

No such allowance exists in Texas traffic code however, I looked.

North Carolina statute from 2008:

"(e) Defense. It shall be a defense to a violation of sub‑subdivision (b)(2)a. of this section if the operator of a motorcycle, as defined in G.S. 20‑4.01(27)d., shows all of the following: (1) The operator brought the motorcycle to a complete stop at the intersection or stop bar where a steady red light was being emitted in the direction of the operator.
(2) The intersection is controlled by a vehicle actuated traffic signal using an inductive loop to activate the traffic signal.
(3) No other vehicle that was entitled to have the right‑of‑way under applicable law was sitting at, traveling through, or approaching the intersection.
(4) No pedestrians were attempting to cross at or near the intersection.
(5) The motorcycle operator who received the citation waited a minimum of three minutes at the intersection or stop bar where the steady red light was being emitted in the direction of the operator before entering the intersection."
