although often late at night they have those active lights that sense when a
car arrives at the intersection and then switches it for you, particularly if
you are coming from the street with less traffic.  sounds great and in a car it
usually is, but  have you ever been a motorcycle rider?  there apparently isn't
enough mass in the MC to trigger the light so you can wait for an hour and it
won't go green for you.  until i suppose, the morning when it finally kicks
back into timed mode.  you're basically forced to either run the light, or wait
for a car/truck to arrive either going or coming from your direction.  BTDT
many times...
