During the MSF class, the instructor said lights in cali were on a weight sensor that was set around 200lbs



If it doesn't work, whatever city mantains that intersection is responsible for fixing it within a 48hour window. He claims to have had the lights near his house fixed. The biggest problem is finding the correct jurisdiction/number to call

You don't need any new law in California. The vehicle code already says in Section 21800 (d)(1) "The driver of any vehicle approaching an intersection which has official traffic control signals that are inoperative shall stop at the intersection, and may proceed with caution when it is safe to do so. This subparagraph shall apply to traffic control signals that become inoperative because of battery failure." If you motorcycle won't operate the light, it is inoperative. Of course it's up to you to proceed safely, just as it would be at a stop sign.

Default Re: TIN FOIL ON THE BLOWN FUSE

So.... then what do you propose doing, if you are stuck at said non-responding light?

Wrap tinfoil around the red light, then claim that the light wasn't working, so all I could do was stop, look, and go.

I believe this qualifies under the "it ain't cheatin if you don't get caught" clause.
