At Traffic Lights That Won’t Change
If a traffic light won’t trigger, is it okay to ride through the intersection? First, try triggering the light by placing a metal part of your bike close to the sensor in the road. If that doesn’t work, some states, including Pennsylvania and Tennessee, allow cyclists to treat a red light like a stop sign. No such law in your state? You can go to the crosswalk and wait for the pedestrian signal.27.5er Light Bicycle MTB
