Just one more way in which the car culture screws bicyclists: traffic lights. With the advent of inductive loop traffic sensors, traffic lights suddenly knew when there was a car waiting to go, and could keep the light red until there was a car. But that means indefinite waiting and eventual required law-breaking by bicyclists.
Well, screw them. Watch the video above and learn. Strap a simple inexpensive neodymium magnet to the bottom of your bike frame and, voila, you're now a recognizable presence in the automated car culture.
