So far I never experience such situation before, maybe I always stop inside the sensor "Box" :sweat: :sweat:

It doesn't make any difference whether a motorcyclist has the right-of-way or not, the rider is the one most likely to get hurt.

Yes... The Junction in front of Boon Siew Motor/KK Hospital and Sengkang area... (At Nite)

 

Then have to side stand the bike and go press the predestrian button in order to turn green...

NTU exit to Jalan Bahar and IMH exit to Buangkok Green.

I hate it if I have to do night shift and need to go out and get supper.

I can park my bike and stand on the damn sensor and it won;t change until a car appears on my side (rare at 1am in the morning) or appears at the other side of the road.

Philosophy A: Ignore what everyone else thinks. Riding is a better way to get around. Ride paranoid and keep your skills sharp

 

Philosophy B: Ride with somebody who's better than you. You will pick up a handy trick or new skill just about every time you are out

 

Philosophy C: You don't need a big bike to prove ur passion for riding

Motorcyclists often get stuck at red lights that never end, because the sensors that cause the light to change to green aren't sensitive enough to know that small vehicles are present.

the ex Nicoll highway turning into Raffles Boulevard (ECP). me going home from gf's house every nite sure passby tat junction, tat was b4 nicoll highway collapse. So, i cheong red lights every nite. :goodluck:

NTU exit to jalan bahar has been re-programmed to timed change of lights. No matter whether there is car/bike coming out or not, it will definitely change at timed intervals... maybe ard 3-5 mins...

 

Never had a problem with that junction even in the wee hours of the morning.. I even tried parking way before the sensor box just to see if it changes, lo and behold, it did after a few mins...

Believe nothing you hear; and only half of what you see.

Do or do not; there is no 'try'.

Traffic signal sensors are essentially metal detectors buried in the road surface. These "inductive loop" sensors are easy to spot because they have a circular, square, or diamond-shaped saw cut in the pavement just before the intersection. There is a weak radio frequency field over the coil, and a large inductive mass disturbs that field. Loop detectors are meant to pick up the presence of large masses of metal - like cars and trucks - sitting still over the detector loop.

 

Most modern bikes don't have enough inductive material in their frames to trip the sensor, and what they have tends to be oriented vertically above the loop (making it harder to sense) so we get stuck.

 

The device emits a wide and powerful magnetic field that when passed over a detector loop, disturbs the loop's field, simulating the arrival of a much larger vehicle. When the control computer sees that signal, it knows someone's there, and the biker gets a green light, just like everyone else.

Sometime I will let my rear wheel depress on the sensor line, if behide got vechicle, I will ride further front so the car can come in & step it.

If not after waiting for 2- 3 min, I will ride on on RED.

Almost all small lane like turning into Estated or Carpark area always like that.

Guess next time bring along a 1ton weight while riding at night. :cheeky:

now then i noe this is useless...:cheeky:
