Traffic light sensitivity
Wednesday, June 4, 2014 - 11:34 am

It would be nice if the local communities would recognize motorcycles as legitimate methods of personal conveyance, not just toys that are used occasionally on the weekends. Some use them as an efficient means of daily transportation. Unfortunately the induction loops used to trigger traffic lights (particularly in Potsdam at the Back Hannawa Rd./Rt11 intersection and the light by the post office) have their sensitivity settings so far out of adjustment that no amount of waiting at the traffic light will allow you to proceed; this results in waiting several light cycles until there is no oncoming traffic in order to proceed.
