How to Trigger a Traffic Light

Has anyone tried this and does it work?  Would love to hear feedback. I am going to try it this weekend.

    Yes, this does work. I’ve ridden carbon fiber frame bikes for many years. Small things like having one pedal straight down so the ferrous metal of the pedal body/axle is close to the sensor also helps. I assume the same issues exist for aluminum frame bikes.

    It works at most lights around here. The ones I see here are not circular rather 3 lines leading to the light. I usually zig-zag my wheel on the center line leading up to the x and then make sure to roll and sit my front wheel on the x. I get a turn signal every time heading west on Ponce to turn onto Commerce. It beats going to the light at Fellini’s because that light never changes….even for cars it takes forever.
