running red lights

  1. Hi Netriders (apologies if i posted this twice)

    I do a lot of night riding to and from work and the roads are fairly quiet. When I stop at red lights and Im the only one around (no cars) I usually run them due to the bloody sensors on the roads not picking up my bike.

    My questions are:
    Does your bike get picked up by the traffic signal sensors or do you run them?

    Has anyone been pulled over by the police and got away with it?

    Is there a way to get picked up by the sensors? - I have tried highbeaming, riding on the lines , getting off the bike and jumping on the lines (just joking about the last one).

    In my case running the red light seems logical - Im not going to sit there and freeze my Kahunas off 2 in the morning- Im interested to see what you guys think.
