A new law in Oregon allows municipalities to use their red-light cameras to ticket speeders, too.

Drivers won’t be fined unless they’re going at least 11 miles per hour over the speed limit. But the speeding tickets can be issued regardless of whether the light was red, yellow, or green at the time.

If you ride a bicycle or motorcycle, this has no doubt happened to you: You stop at a red light controlled by a sensor in the pavement and you wait... and wait.
