  • Freeway onramp metering

    Hello, been awhile since I'ved browsed this site/forum...

    Anyway, I live in Wisconsin and understand traffic signal laws may be different. My question is about freeway on-ramp/interchange metering. If both lanes are red and no one else is in line in either lane, is it illegal to proceed through anyway? Or is it considered like running a red light on suface streets?
    I you said "Google" to anyone 15 years ago, they would've thought you were just being silly.

      Its Still Running a Red Light. Ive been in the FDOT market for years. Most intersections are either on a Timer, Or Detection. Some Video Detection or Loop Detection.

        thats fucking bullshit because I cant tell you how many times I would get to the light from I95 north to 192 and wait 10 fucking minutes and end up running the light anyway

          That's my point...wait for nothing, just keep going if no-one else is around/waiting. Of course I'll wait my turn when other traffic is in line, but i'm curious if metering lights are considered the same as actual traffic lights at an intersection. I appreciate the responses, thanx!
