So I recently started commuting to work by bicycle, I leave my house at ~4am to give me plenty of time to arrive at work with room for a flat tire and a shower when I arrive (it's a very hilly 16 mile ride).
I took a left turn through a red light, after stopping and checking for traffic, this light in particular will NOT change for a bike, trust me, I've waited.
The only car in sight was one coming in the opposite direction appr. ~200 yd's ahead, shortly after taking the left the car that was coming in the opposite direction drives up behind me, BLING BLING the red and blues light up.
Luckily no ticket, just a lecture.
How do you guys handle red lights that won't change for a bike? To my understanding some states allow you to take the left against the light if it won't change, though I am unsure if Oregon is one of them.
