Some might consider this an odd question but I am serious on how you handle this.
I have returned to riding after several decades. I work second shift and half of my riding is at night after midnight when there is sparse traffic. All the traffic intersections that are controlled by lights in my area SEPA, now have sensors under the pavement or beside the traffic lights (when I rode before all intersection lights were timed). At night the suspended sensors pick up your headlights and the lights are set to change. If they only have the sensors under the pavement, the timer senses the metal in the vehicle and the lights are then set to change.
Here is the problem, I have several intersections on the way home that only have the sensors in the pavement and they are not picking up the metal in my bike (R1200RT). The lights do not change.
I talked to a local twp police officer last weekend and his advice is that when approaching an intersection, flash my high beams and that should trip the sensor. If they do not have the light sensor, he said I can not run the red light, I have to turn right and then do a U turn.
That does not make sense to me but that is the law.
Your thoughts please.
