It is deemed necessary to follow the road code, signs and lights. If it is that you are under the influence of hard substances, don’t get behind the wheel. Running the red light is not only an offence but is highly dangerous and accident prone. When driving you should be doing just that and nothing else, your eyes should be on the road at all times. Safety gears are made for motorcycle to prevent major injuries. Speed limits are supposed to be maintained. Stop signs and lights are to be obeyed.
