    I have no idea if any traffic signals in my city even have sensors. I treat all traffic signals the same be it green or red. If the coast is clear, I go.

    Don't panic. I still have 4 bikes.

    Go to the Adirondacks instead. The roads are wider, better marked, people are friendlier, and campgrounds abound. Plenty indoor places to stay as well. I found Vermont to be a touring nightmare...

    +1
