The Problem: You ride up to a traffic light. It's red. The automatic signal controller doesn't detect your bike. The light stays red. You're not getting your turn. If it's a turn lane, you get to watch the other lanes go through the cycle from green to yellow to red, over and over, and still your lane stays red. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you're lucky, a car or truck pulls in behind you and trips the light. Or you might pull out into one of the other lanes and go ahead without that turn. Some may even wait for a safe moment, turn through the red, and hope no police are watching. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Solution: The Green Light Trigger makes motorcycles "visible" to traffic light sensors. Once the controller knows a bike's there, the rider will get a green light, just like everyone else. How it works - The most common type of signal sensor is the "loop detector," essentially a metal detector buried in the road. They're easily identified by the circular, square, rectangular, or diamond-shaped saw cuts in the road surface approaching the intersection. That's where the detector coils are placed. Unfortunately, most motorcycles don't have enough magnetically permeable metal in their frames to trigger loop detectors reliably. But the heart of the Green Light traffic light trigger is a special high flux magnet, so when a bike equipped with the The Green Light Trigger passes over a loop detector, it acts like a mini-generator, inducing a voltage spike as its moving magnetic field cuts across the stationary coil in the road. The controller gets a signal, and the biker gets a green light! In fact, a traffic engineer we talked to told us the light's controller probably thinks there's a truck in the lane!
