56% of Portland OR, Bicyclists Run Red Lights in Crosswalk. Do you think we have the same problem here???

Portland State University students performed a recent 'behavior study' and found that 56% of bicyclists run red lights, compared to 7% of motorists.  The study was completed early in November 2011 for a duration of eight hours, recording a total of 502 vehicle operators (497 motorists and 99 bicyclists).

 Do you think we have the same problem here in Idaho?
