If he's already stopped too, I miss your point here. Legally if you go through the light, the vehicle behind you still has to pull foreword and stop.

(2) *Red or completely unlighted signal shall stop in the same manner as at a stop sign, and the right to proceed shall be subject to the rules applicable after making a stop at a stop sign as provided in section 3323 (relating to stop signs and yield signs).

One1 If y'all get on eBay and search for those super magnets you can get them fairly cheap and the scooter guys use them on the bottom of their frame to trigger the lights since they are magnetic Trigger. I've taken one on a string and walked across an intersection and change the lights.

There's no light I am not able to trigger just like a car after putting them on all my bikes.

you need to read that law, you can only turn on red if it has gone through multiple cycles and still hasnt changed to green. its also almost $200 if you dont wait....

Paulywog CT, is a right turn on red after stop,but also has a left turn after 90 seconds for mc. I kept the article bookmarked on my phone,in case I get pulled over and have a problem with the police.!!!

michiganteddybear agree KM, I wouldnt put a magnet under the bike.. but I *have* thought about bringing the centerstand down to the road (not putting bike on it, just lowering it with my foot) while over them loops. it is after all steel, and the closer the steel is to the loop, the more likely it is to tripping the sensor.

and your dead on about how they work, they are just loops of a large metal detector

Knifemaker Doing as MTB said, stopping right over the "cut" in the road where they buried the loop will usually work. You can also report intersections to your DOT that won't trip for you, and they'll try to fix it. We have the same law here allowing you to run a light that won't change for you.

Magnets under your bike sound like a good way to stand up a nail on the road to take out your rear tire. The "loops" are really just large metal detectors... it make more sense to bolt a heavy iron frying pan under your bike....

Goofyfoot2001 SC allows me to go right on through in like 30 seconds if it doesn't change. I run the hell out of red lights all the time. Though on occasion I will motion wildly to the people behind me that are keeping a safe distance to move the hell up so the light trips.
