A few years back, Virginia changed the law allowing us to run them (as a stop sign).

We must wait 2 cycles or 90 seconds before proceeding (by the book). I usually ride early in the morning and I know which ones wont trip. I stop, look, and proceed. :thumb:

Same here in Indiana, but I think it's 2 or 3 minutes. But that translates to 20-30 seconds with my watch. :guilty:

+1 What Capn Kirk said. I carry the ruling in my wallet. Some lights I regularly hit I'll wait and brake hard when my front tire gets on the 'pad' if I'm the only vehicle. More often than not the added force of the weight transfer activates the sensor.

Even with the Rulings and Code related to Non-Functioning light.

Officers MAY cite based on what they witness

If an officer only sees a rider run the light it's a Citable Offense.

If the Officer Cites, to "Get Off" it will require (in CA) two trips to the court.
One for plea, one for trial.

Officer cites based on what they Witness , after you plea your case
the Judge Decides.

I don't do it.

Different positioning in lane usually works

Definitely find your local laws on it. Unfortunately with some lights no amount of lane positioning, magnets, or gadgets will work. Here in NV they JUST enacted a law allowing riders to treat a light as a four-way stop after two full cycles.

Gotta love a good cop. A crooked cop, on the other hand...

The "pads"'are actually loops of wire that create a magnetic field. Try stopping with the chassis in the loop. It doesn't always work, but you've got a better chance.
