Description

Greetings,

My medium sized motorcycle, at about 800 cc and 500 lbs, has never been able to trip the traffic signal sensor at this intersection, so I am always getting stuck there. It should be possible to detect such a vehicle with the current equipment. If the sensor cannot be adjusted to be more sensitive, perhaps the markings they recommend could be used in addition, or instead? See this paper here, which is for even smaller vehicles: bicycles.
