Ok, there's this light near where I live which is automatically on "red" for both directions. Both directions operate via a sensor (either on top of the light/in the road??) when a car comes upon the light it changes to green for about 10 seconds, then cycles to amber,then red. It does this for all four directions at a standard 4way intersection. This also has buttons pedestrians can push to activate it as well.
Now, the sensors don't detect bicycles. (i've tested it on different occasions). For the sake of argument, which is my best (and most legal) course of action? (I already just go through the red light) In the event of a cop stopping me (I'm kinda out in the sticks) for going through a red light, I'm looking for a good argument I could give:
a. stop and wait for a car to come along in the same direction to trip the circuit (however long that may be)
b. go over and push the pedestrian button to activate
c. go through the red light
d. something else - what?
