I agree with one thing he mentioned. If I am at a red light and the cross traffic is clear and I am the only one stopped there I will run it. Why you may ask. I feel very vulnerable sitting there particularly if I am making a left turn. I would rather run the light when there is a clearing then sit there and have the light turn green about the time there are cars approaching behind me. What is most drivers reaction when coming to a red light and it turns green before they get there? Most step back down on the gas harder. Possibly the worst time to be on a bike and the driver doesn't see you because they were too focused on that green light.
