1. Obey, obey, obey Cyclists, just like motorists, must obey all traffic control devices It takes longer to travel through an intersection on bike; plan to stop for yellow lights Avoid cars that run red lights: wait for the green and scan to make sure it's clear 2. Detection Bicycles must activate a vehicle detector just like a motor vehicle Detectors are embedded in the roadway; look for squares cut into the roadway Detectors use magnetic forces to sense vehicles, not weight 3. Unresponsive signals In most states, after three minutes, you can treat a red light as a stop sign Pass through a red light only as a last resort and do so with extreme caution Yield to other vehicles while crossing the roadwayTip courtesy of the League of American Bicyclists (bikeleague.org).
