Motorcycles can finally go through red lights that don't change. (like i haven't done that before)

CHICAGOŚ Motorcycle Red Lights (HB 2860/PA 97-0627): Allows motorcyclists stopped at a red light to proceed through the light if, after waiting a reasonable length of time, the red light fails to change to green. Governor Quinn issued an amendatory veto to change the language of the measure, however both the House and Senate overrode his changes and the bill became law as originally passed.

The key word is "reasonable"  Jessy White was on the news and said if you get pulled over it is up to the desertion of the cop what is reasonable time.

To me, reasonable means you wait through a cycle of lights where you should've gotten your turn, but the green skipped over your turn. After that, if traffic is clear, I'm going.

Finally it will be legal for something  I have doing for years. My sport bikes would never trip a light. Oh, of coarse Quinn would try to change it. How long before he joins the rest of our Governor's in jail. Ass hat!
