Left turn sensors are really annoying.
Fortunately I only have two sensors on my commute that won't register my bike. The HOV gate getting off of inbound I-45 in the morning and the on ramp meter light getting on the main lanes of I-45 just south of the end of the HOV. I can just go around the gate and the other I wait till the light should have tripped then twist the throttle.
The one that really sucks, though, is the gate at my work. It won't register if it is raining. Then I have to back track and go out the security guard gate at the back of the property. I will have to try the kick stand trick next time.
Peace.

Buy a neodymium magnet, very strong yet small. Place somewhere on underside and it will interrupt the magnetic field, on the ones set that way.

This happens to me. I had the magnet on an older bike and it worked well but I forgot to remove it when I sold that bike.. I keep forgetting to get another one though.

I didnt read all the posts, so if it is already said...oops.

All the lights here do that to me. This place is crawling with cops though, so I always take a right, then make a U-turn to stay legal.

In the City of Houston, the 2 most common types of vehicular detection are:

1. Inductive loops cut into the roadway that is being discussed here. And, as already noted; the most sensitive portion of these loops are right on top of the saw cuts where the wire is embedded.

2. Video detection, which is what the cameras are for at most intersections. There are algorithims that are used in the software that look for video contrast in a zone. However, if the camera becomes misaligned from the target zone, you either get detections from unwanted zones, or absolutely no detection due to no contrasting pixels in the video. So, you can't wait for a car to pull up behind you to put a call for service to the controller. And, the biggest magnet you can install (or mass of iron) will not do you a bit of good.

There are other forms of detection in use. But, you probably will not encounter any problems with those since there isn't that much out there.

Go back home, put your bike in your truck, then retry the light....If this doesn't work, put one tire on the line and stick your tongue out, if this don't work, stand on your head and smoke a cigarette....Or, you can just run it.....
