Be sure the traffic signal "sees" you

If you pull past the painted stop bar, the traffic signal will never “see” you….  Just a reminder that the electromagnetic loop that activates a traffic signal – especially for turn lanes – is in the space behind the stop bar.  If you pull beyond the stop bar, as this car did, the car’s metal won’t activate the loop.  The signal won’t know that you’re waiting for it to change.  This photo is from Farrow Parkway and Kings Highway.
