I had the pleasure of meeting a couple who were visiting the area during one of my rides. I don't think they had any understanding that signals could change so fast.
Shame on traffic engineers placing cyclists in such a hazardous position. Luckily the car saw us and slowed, I'm sure they thought we jumped the light even though it was green when we started!
What to look for:
1) Light turns green, it's red on fade-in.
2) Light turns yellow before I pass the turn island!
3) Light turns green for opposing traffic before I'm halfway through.
4) Driver says to passenger "look at that, those damn bicycle riders, they never follow the law!"
