Colorado Bill SB144 would allow motorcycles to pass through red lights under certain circumstances

Zenzinger’s bill would allow motorcycles to proceed through a red light if a sensor isn’t working or if the light is malfunctioning. Motorcyclists have to wait for two minutes and for traffic to be clear to proceed.

“It says that after a certain amount of time if you’re stuck at one of these lights you could proceed with caution through the light,” she said.

“We have a number of people in my community who have brought this issue up. They don’t want to be law breakers.”

Twelve other states have passed similar laws.
