SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A bill that would allow Utah drivers to run red lights in certain situations passed in the House on Monday.
It now moves to the Senate.
HB 151, which amends the state’s current traffic flow laws, would let drivers proceed through a red light after coming to a complete stop for at least 90 seconds after “reasonably determining” that the traffic light hasn’t detected their presence, no other vehicles are approaching the intersection, and no other safety hazards exist.
