The Longest Red Light in Grand Junction

In the photo gallery below, I must agree with the comments from Sonja and Brian. They pointed out a couple of lights around Grand Junction that seem to go to sleep. They don't always register that a car is waiting at an intersection for a light to cycle. This includes the light going into Riverside and the light at 32 Road and F Road.

Can I Run A Red Light If No One Is Around?

We've all done it. You are waiting for a light to change during off-peak hours, and it stays red. We saw several comments that said, "Nobody else was around, so I ran the light." This is technically illegal.

Sometimes rolling your car across the sensor a second time will trigger the light to change. Another option is to make a right-turn at the light that won't change, then make a legal U-turn at the next available spot. Head back to the intersection. As long as no one else is around, this is a pretty easy option that won't get you a ticket for running a red light.

Keep going to see which traffic signals you told us are the longest lights in Grand Junction.
