I missed this when it happened: last May, Nevada Governor Brian Brian Sandoval signed AB 117 into law. This new law which takes effect on October 1 allows people on motorcycles, mopeds, bicycles, electric bicycles and “trimobiles” to run a red light under certain conditions.
AB 117 allows cyclists to proceed across an intersection against a red light if he determines the traffic signal is “defective” and will not recognize the presence of his vehicle. The cyclist must yield the right of way to pedestrians and other vehicles before running the red light. In other words, the cyclist can treat certain traffic lights like stop signs.
