Wisconsin Red Light Bill

Here is the Wisconsin statute;
346.37 (1) (c) 4. Notwithstanding subd. 1., a motorcycle,
moped, motor bicycle, or bicycle facing a red signal
at an intersection may, after stopping as required
under subd. 1. for not less than 45 seconds, proceed cautiously
through the intersection before the signal turns
green if no other vehicles are present at the intersection
to actuate the signal and the operator of the motorcycle,
moped, motor bicycle, or bicycle reasonably believes the
signal is vehicle actuated. The operator of a motorcycle,
moped, motor bicycle, or bicycle proceeding through a
red signal under this subdivision shall yield the right−of−
way to any vehicular traffic, pedestrian, bicyclist, or rider
of an electric personal assistive mobility device proceeding
through a green signal at the intersection or lawfully
within a crosswalk or using the intersection. This subdivision
does not affect any authorization for a bicyclist
under subd. 2.

The state patrol was the only opposition we had. They wanted to make a non working recognition system "a valid defense in court". That would have meant that a police stop would be made, along with all the hassles involved with that, a ticket would be written, the biker would have to take a day off work to go to court. Our legislators did not think that was reasonable and passed the above language over their objections.
