2012 House Bill 5848: Allow two-wheeler to disregard malfunctioning automated traffic signal
Introduced by Rep. Mike Shirkey R-Clark Lake on September 11, 2012
To allow motorcycle, bicycle, moped or three-wheeler vehicles to proceed through a red light at an automated traffic signal if the device does not detect them within one full cycle, or 60 seconds if it is not working at all. If the person gets a ticket anyway there would be a legal presumption that the automated signal was not working, rebuttable only by testimony that a law enforcement official witnessed the person proceeding before the specified time limits.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Transportation Committee on September 11, 2012
Reported in the House on November 28, 2012
