The only research I have seen (i.e., proper observational research as opposed to anecdotal evidence ( cherry-picked or otherwise non-representative samples of typical cases) suggests, in Melbourne at least, that 6.9% of cyclists run red lights whereas 7 to 9 % of motorists where observed doing the same . Assuming this is representative of Australian cyclists I wouldn't be arguing that 6.9% of cyclists is anything close to the majority.
If you can point to other research on red light jumping by cyclists I would be most interested; particularly evidence that supports your claim.
