Virginia and a number of other state have 'dead red' laws that allow you to blow the light after a certain amount of time if it doesn't trigger. Not sure if DC has a law, but I was pulled over once for blowing a dead red that my motorcycle wouldn't trigger, and the officer let me off after I explained the issue.

Or they could just spare all the ridiculous costs and put the lights back on time-of-day and day-of-week timers. Predicable and safer all around. Gives people a fighting chance of getting out of their neighborhoods or side streets without waiting 2 minutes for a car (or bike) triggered light to change.

ontario, while true, it doesn't really help much if you're, for instance, trying to cross Route 7 at the Fairfax Cross-County trail. Traffic is going by at 60+, and there often aren't any breaks.

(Used to be an unofficial trail under the route 7 bridge for mountain bikers/horses, but that eroded away.)

What about people, like me, who don't have a "smart" phone? Mine pretty much makes phone calls and takes pictures, and that's it.

You're no worse off than you were before.
