    (KUTV) — A new proposed law would allow drivers to run red lights.

    Of course, it will only be allowed on some roads when the intersection is clear of both cars and pedestrians, but Rep. Ken Ivory wants to bring those experiences of waiting at lights on empty roads to an end.

    House Bill 0151, if passed, would amend current red light laws in some situations. It allows a driver to head through a red light if they are waiting on a highway with a speed limit of 55 miles per hour, or lower, during a time of "extremely low traffic levels."

    The driver must determine there are no other vehicles at or near the intersection that would be unsafe, if there are no pedestrians attempting to cross at or near the intersections and no other safe concerns.
