As it was explained to me by the Tester:When I first got the tw i got trapped in a left turn lane light at a nasty intersection for an hour!!
Could not get out of my lane and never had a gap of more then 3 feet to shoot through..
A gap of 3 feet in 50to65 mph traffic on a tw would be certain death..
The older lady behind me would not pull closer to me to trip the light.............
"If you have entered the intersection BEFORE the light turns yellow...then even when the light turns RED, you have right-of-way to complete your turn."
What that means is that even if your bike hasn't activated the sensor...you can enter partially into the intersection. If the light turns red, you may complete the turn that you intended.
This also means putting a lot of faith in the other drivers.
