COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina has joined six other states
that let motorcyclists, mo-ped drivers and bicyclists run red
lights that don't change within a couple minutes of their stopping.
Gov. Mark Sanford signed the bill into law Tuesday.
It requires motorcyclists, mo-peds and bicycles to stop for two
minutes before entering an intersection if a traffic signal has not
turned green. Motorcyclists pushed the legislation because they
said automatic signal controls using sensor embedded in roads don't
always detect their bikes.
The American Motorcyclist Association says Arkansas, Idaho,
Minnesota, North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin have similar
laws.
