I usually try and put the magnet right over the line on the box.

Isn't there a law, or at least a law that was being proposed that would allow bikes to run the red light as long as it was all clear? lol :dontknow: Maybe it was a weird dream.

Treat it as a stop sign or learn to ride around the light.

most officers understand about the light not turning for you, if you get passed by a cycle of lights, go ahead whent he road is clear.

U are suposed to treat it as a 4 way stop if it don't change within a reasonable amount of time.
there is a # somewhere that u can call the city and complain about certain lights. enough complaints and they will come out and adjust it.
The scensor is a electronic magnet in the ground and the metal on your bike breaks up the signal causing it to change. I try to stop with my front rotor on the left "crack" line of the sensor. seems to work most of the time.
