(Olympia, WA)  --  Among the new laws that went into effect last week in Washington is one that allows motorcyclists to run red lights.  Under the law, motorcyclists can proceed through a red light if the light doesn't turn green after one full cycle.  Motorcyclists must be cautious and proceed through the intersection safely, as if stopping at a stop sign.  Officials say many motorcycles aren't heavy enough to set off sensors that control traffic-light cycles, and bikers can sit at a red light for minutes, rather than seconds, before the light turns green.
