Longtime California cyclist advocate Bob Shanteau sent this 1985 report on traffic signal bicycle detection and asked me to archive it here at Cyclelicious.
Pleasanton, California uses radar to detect the difference between a motor vehicle and a bicycle, adjusting the green phase accordingly. Is this really as “bicycle friendly” as we think it is?
I ride on Foothill Boulevard / Foothill Expressway all the time and I never noticed this goofiness until Beverly pointed it to me on a recent ride.
