Some traffic lights last around 2 minutes in my town. Population: 640. Traffic lights: 3.

Stupid, dangerous, human life isn't worth it. Regret the ones I ran and didn't mean to.

Surprisingly and probably worse they've all been by accident. No other drivers were injured in the making of this comment.

That should be a statute in the heavy obama voter areas. After dark do not stop!

Only while following a convoy in an unfamiliar area. I wasn't about to get separated and lost.

Took a wrong turn in a bad part of Chicago at 3am got pulled over and the cop told me to follow him and not stop or slow down for anything until he did. We hauled ass thru countless stop signs and lights.

This includes turning right at a no turn on red intersection, so I suspect the numbers are not accurate with this poll.

Living in a small city, many of the small street/highway intersections have a different "cycle" late at night. Many times, the "highway" lights will cycle from green to red then back to green, but the "street" light will not change. I usually wait through at least two cycles before I run it.

I tend to miscalculate the duration of the yellow light and end up going through when it's red

I travel allot, and allot of times I travel late and in the middle of the night. Have you ever stopped at a stop light and there is no traffic anywhere that's when you run it. Never at full speed you will kill someone.
2am in the morning I did this a cop was hidden, just shook his head at me.

One word: motorcycle.

If you ride, you get this.

I made my husband turn left on on a red light when I was in labor.
I ran one myself once because I thought it was a left yield on green. Noticed a few days later the sign said left turn signal.

Not unless you count when the intersection was blocked for a funeral procession of which I was a part.

That happened to me a few times when I rode a scooter... I'd wait and wait

When your on a motorcycle and your bike doesn't trip the sensor, sometimes your forced to.

I'm not interested in paying fines from red light cameras to get to my destination 30 seconds faster.

Yes. When I get off work at 3-4am and there's no cars what so ever I'm not gonna stand there and waiting for nothing. Some Red lights should turn to stop signs after certain hours

Great, and put yourself in the hospital while your at it.

Not saying I won't run a light ever, but at 135mph you're f'n nuts!! I'll stop and then go thru a red light at wee hours in the morning when there is not a single other person in sight.

In MN you can legally run red lights on motorcycles if the light has missed the left arrow on two rotations and it "looks clear."

When it's late like that, I treat red lights like stop signs.
