• You no gets catched

  • Or if you need to escape someone trying to ticket you for moving out the way of an emergency vehicle.

  • A good reason for rlj is colourblindness.

    Not really, unless they live in a vacuum (or they're a complete fuckwit) they'll be aware which lights are which (i.e. the top one is red, etc) and they'll still be able to tell which one of the 3 lights are illuminated or not.

  • Or if you need to escape someone trying to ticket you for moving out the way of an emergency vehicle.

    Can't escape the cameras (my brother was done by a camera on the back of a bus for moving into a bus lane to let an ambulance through quicker). Cocks.

  • 3 days and no merging? I'm surprise at you @hippy

  • 3 days? Whatchutalkinboutwillis? There's been no merge facility since we moved to the new forum software. That's why there's so much duplicated shit. It'll take years to kill everyone clean up the mess.

  • Legit reason for not stopping


  • Well.. Mostly I jump red lights at night ..mostly

  • There's no legitimate reasons. If you jump the lights it's against the law. If you choose to do it you should accept that and stop trying to make some moral justification for yourself. BTW I jump them all the time

  • Cos Silicon Roundabout is a roundabout and there is no-one coming from the right, so the red light is sort of irrelevant.

    This excuse may only work very early in the morning.

  • a solution to this thread,

    A proposed ordinance would make the city the largest to allow bicyclists to roll past stop signs if the path is clear.
