Great news!  We can keep blowing through stop signs and stop lights at night, in dark clothes, and with no lights!  Check out this study done by the Department for Transport in the UK.

“The study, carried out for the Department for Transport, found that in 2% of cases where cyclists were seriously injured in collisions with other road users police said that the rider disobeying a stop sign or traffic light was a likely contributing factor. Wearing dark clothing at night was seen as a potential cause in about 2.5% of cases, and failure to use lights was mentioned 2% of the time.”
