The dead red law is now in effect in Indiana. The law, in a nutshell, allows motorcyclists and bicyclists to run red lights when they are stuck at an intersection an unable to trigger the light cycle. Bikers are supposed to wait 2 minutes before they pull through, and they have to be sure that there is no cross traffic. Local authorities say the law will be tough to enforce and simply ask that people exercise caution when utilizing the new law. The law already exists in more than a dozen other states.
