I like to use my old gizmo I call the "yield to traffic with the right of way and proceed with caution"... but if this thing actually works for ten bucks it might be cool

I especially like how the auction shows pictures of red and green traffic lights, just in case you didn't know what they looked like...

They passed a law here in TN year before last that makes it perfectly legal, and for exactly this reason.

Everyone I talk to that say "they work.", has never had one or even know anyone by name that did.
The same thing goes for those that say "it dont work".
So.....
If you do get one......
Let us know if it works.
(and your name is....?)

I bought one a couple years ago because there was a left I had to make on the way to work that would never see me. The local shop actually sold it to me ($25 I think). They say it works great but I since changed routes and have been too lazy to mount it. If the weather holds maybe I'll try it out today.

I was watching a TV show and they busted a dude for using a similar device too often. They noticed the lights changing at the same time everyday when the guy was on his way to work/home and busted his a**. Emergency vehicles use similar devices.

The one I have simply makes the light trigger see you on a bike. It doesn't force the light to change prematurely or give any kind of adventage that a cage wouldn't have. Something about magnets and completeing the loop so that the signal knows you are there and will give you your turn.

Oh ok, I thought it was one that turns it green immediately, this one just lets the light know you are there so it will turn.

JUNK! SCAM!

Send me the money and I'll send you a tube of my pee. Spray some on said light and it will never give you any more red lights ever again.

It also will double as a insect killer and "pus s y magnet"
