Revving engine at traffic light to engage red light sensors?
Edit: these are referring to ground based electromagnetic magnetic sensors. No shit it won't work for the other types. Read the whole post.
So I had a buddy the other day, I consider him to be pretty smart, tell me that you can engage traffic light sensors by spooling your engine up. Does something with the electro magnetic field and engages the sensor to switch the traffic light.
Anybody every heard of this or tried it? I tried it for the first time today and it seemed to work (The pedestrian light turned immediately after followed by the light that was otherwise not changing) but who knows, maybe just coincidental timing.
I'd like to get anybodies experience on this before I start getting "What a douche" glares from people. But if it works, fuck em.
I'm usually pretty good at lining up the bike over the sensors but as they start to pave over these roads, you loose those sensor lines from when they were first installed. So I got two lights right by my house that seem pretty hit or miss for me after they repaved the road and the reference lines are gone.
