Inoperative Signals


Shawn asked: I recently read this article from my home state:

Basically, if your bike or motorcycle isn’t being picked up by traffic lights, you are allowed to run the light.  Does FL have a similar statute?


The Florida statute that applies is subject to interpretation. See the following post and discussion that includes the FHP’s interpretation.

One significant difference is that a bicyclist can legally move to the sidewalk and have the rights and duties of a pedestrian, whereas a motorcyclist cannot do so.
