Sheriff's Department warns of new motorcycle law

June 18, 2014

Earlier this month, Senate Bill 5141 went into effect changing rules governing motorcyclists on public roadways.
The new law states, in part, that the operator of a street legal motorcycle approaching and intersection, including a left turn intersection, that is controlled by a triggered traffic control signal using a vehicle detection device that is inoperative due to the size of the street legal motorcycle, shall come to a full and complete stop at the intersection.
If the traffic control signal, including the left turn signal, as appropriate, fails to operate after one cycle of the traffic signal, the operator may, after exercising due care, proceed directly through the intersection or proceed to turn left, as appropriate.
With this new law in effect, motorcyclists must make certain traffic is clear and utilizing this new law does not put yourself or other motorists/motorcyclists at risk.
