I hate being stuck at an endless red light as much as the next person, but if House Bill 416 becomes law, I see confusion and chaos ahead.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, allows people to drive through a red light if no one is around. That is very subjective. After all, Rep. Ivory's constituent whose experience led to the bill thought no one was around when he decided to drive through a red light. He was stopped and ticketed by a police officer. Obviously, someone was around even though the driver was unaware of it.
