Inductive Loop Traffic Detector April 27, 2011Posted by faelix in moron-ocity.
Over the Easter break, I’ve done a bit more driving than I usually do. And twice, at the same place, we got stuck behind a MORON who was too scared to stop their car at the line of the intersection. Why was this a problem you might ask? Because the traffic signals are triggered with those inductive loop traffic detectors. And if you don’t put your car over it, it won’t detect your car and you will wait forever.
Stopping your car at the line over those marks in the road is NOT going to hurt you or your car, you numbskulls! They’re not an indication of a trapdoor or anything sinister. They will trigger the traffic signals to cycle to green for YOU! ARGH!
