The traffic sensors on this intersection are not sufficiently sensitive to pick up a bicycle in the right turn bay. In the present configuration the right turning red light remains lit, never allowing a cyclist to progress unless a car comes up close behind and onto the sensor. Can these sensors be made more sensitive, or can the red arrow be switched off when no traffic is detected in the right turn bay, or provide a green arrow regardless of whether a vehicle is detected. The second option is probably the best since the traffice is usually light enough for a cyclist to get across with the normal give way rules.

Great response. Presently working with traffic light people to get the sensor tuned to detect bicyles.
