Greason Wants to Give Two-Wheelers Green Light to Run Red Lights

January 21, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

First-Year Delegate Says Legislation is Meant to Keep Bikers Safe

First-year delegate, Thomas “Tag” Greason (R-eastern Loudoun), has introduced legislation in Virginia’s General Assembly that would allow those riding two-wheeled vehicles to pass through red traffic lights.

Greason said the idea for the bill arose in December after noticing that large amounts of snow piled at intersections prevented vehicles from triggering sensors that activate green traffic signals. Seeing this, he figured the issue likely posed even more of a hassle for smaller vehicles, like motorcycles. Then, over casual conversation with another delegate, he learned that South Carolina recently enacted a law that allowed motorcyclists to treat red lights like stop signs. So why not in Virginia, he thought.

VA 2010 Motorcycle Related Legislation

January 13, 2010 by · Comments Off on VA 2010 Motorcycle Related Legislation 

Here is a quick list of motorcycle related bills that have been filed for this years Virginia legislative session.

This would allow a rider to proceed through a red traffic light after coming to a complete stop and waiting 120 seconds.
HB752
Traffic lights; allows motorcycle, etc., to proceed through intersections showing steady red signal.

This changes Virginia’s helmet law to include those mini-scooters, pocket bikes, and what not.
HB395
Motorcycles; helmet use. Removes exception that allows operators and passengers riding on motorcycles with wheels of eight inches or less to ride without wearing a helmet.

Not specifically motorcycle related, but this is one that we have tried to change in years past to make it legal for 2 motorcycles to ride side by side.
HB163
Vehicles driving abreast. Provides that the prohibition on vehicles driving abreast does not apply to vehicles lawfully overtaking and passing vehicles traveling in the same direction.

BAD! – Loud Pipes Save Lives!!! HB579
Mufflers on motorcycles. Provides that motorcycles shall use a muffler system in good working order that meets federal standards.

I am sure this one comes from one of the talking points from last couple years two abreast bills with us saying LEOs regularly ride two abreast.
SB321
Motorcycles driving two abreast; law-enforcement officers. Allows law-enforcement officers on official duty to drive motorcycles two abreast in a single lane.

Here is a link to the motorcycle search results… (May or may not work) There are a few others with the mention of motorcycle in them, but the bills are not specifically motorcycle related.

Anyone know of anything else going on or any other bills that we, as motorcycle riders, may be interested in?
