I hate being stuck at a red light for a long time!! It's late at night and no other cars around. Anyone have any recommendations on a green light trigger?

Check your state statutes to see if you can legally "run" the red light. Here is the pertinent section for Minnesota:

M.S.A. § 169.06. Signs, signals, markings
Subd. 9. Affirmative defense relating to unchanging traffic-control signal. (a) A person operating a bicycle or motorcycle who violates subdivision 4 by entering or crossing an intersection controlled by a traffic-control signal against a red light has an affirmative defense to that charge if the person establishes all of the following conditions:
(1) the bicycle or motorcycle has been brought to a complete stop;
(2) the traffic-control signal continues to show a red light for an unreasonable time;
(3) the traffic-control signal is apparently malfunctioning or, if programmed or engineered to change to a green light only after detecting the approach of a motor vehicle, the signal has apparently failed to detect the arrival of the bicycle or motorcycle; and
(4) no motor vehicle or person is approaching on the street or highway to be crossed or entered or is so far away from the intersection that it does not constitute an immediate hazard.
(b) The affirmative defense in this subdivision applies only to a violation for entering or crossing an intersection controlled by a traffic-control signal against a red light and does not provide a defense to any other civil or criminal action.

No need for a signal trigger, just a little patience. :)

on the streets in my town you can see a box cut into the ground before every street light just have to line up on one end of the box and it reads me every time, someone was telling me its magnetic thats why it reads if over the cut in the road.

If you can see the sensor loop scar in the pavement, put your front wheel over it, lean over, and wag the bars. This worked on my mountain bike. If it's real dead out, jump off the bike and hit the crosswalk button.

I can't remember where I read it, but it was for people that ride and have issues triggering the green lights.

The website said put a couple rare earth magnets along the bottom of your bike. The magnets are powerful enuff to trigger the light to go green.


Again I can't remember where I saw it but it's out there some where.
