How often do you Run Red Lights?
Just curious... you know.. its 11pm. at a quiet local intersection, look left, look right - no cars for 1km each way.

Do you sit and wait for 2-3 minutes, or do you just say whatt the ****? and just go.

Lately i've been doing the former a lot more. (especially on my bike which never trips the light sensors)

It saves both time and gas and the environment. The affect on traffic safety / society is nil.

as an aside - in Halifax, come midnight or so, most of the lights turn into flashing red "stop signs" -its a pretty good idea.

I never have. It makes sense when "no one" is around... but I guess I'm a chump.

Also in Calgary, a lot of lights turn into flashing yellow/red on weekends or low traffic times.

Never have

I don't even slow down. I speed up.

the faster I go through the intersection, the quicker i'm through.

Plus, i'm chameleon, so I blend in, and cops don't even notice anything happened.

^ in your current car colour??? :D

Never have. Not worth the risk that a cop is there that one time!

I've done it once or twice, but that was only after sitting at the light for a couple of minutes (at really small intersections)... It's not really worth the risk.

Btw, watch out for red light cameras if you DO run the red light.

someguy 10-23-2007 01:21 AM

nope...but there is ONE intersection where the light literally takes 4-5 mins, so if there is nobody there, i take a right pull a u-turn:D
