Re: traffic lights don't see cyclists in Lausanne

I think that there are two types of signal systems in Lausanne (as has been mentioned). Some use the camera sensor, some use the loop in the pavement/ground. If there is a special spot for bikes (often a spot is reserved in front of the line of cars), be sure you are in that box and not over at the side with your foot on the sidewalk. This should help.

Interestingly, some of the lights do see me on my bike (and some others started recognizing me recently), so I guess the system is not inherently broken.
That indeed is very interesting!

Re: traffic lights don't see cyclists in Lausanne

Okay, and who can I complain to officially about the lights that don't see me on the bike?
