Cincinnati's New Loop Detectors

while (light red){
echo "c'mon ya %$@! light, CHANGE !";

Cincinnati is coming up with more stuff to make bicycling a little more easy / a little more equal. Every cyclist has encountered traffic lights that are not timed but need to be "tripped" by an automobile. The problem is, the light cyclist can't do the tripping. The cyclist had one option. Walk over to a crosswalk button & hit the button then walk back to the street. Enter the new "loop detectors". When you see the above illustration on the road before an intersection, positioning your wheels onto the 2 stripes should signal the signal to give you a green light.
For more info get the poorly named PDF.
