I notified the city of Santa Clara about the difficulty of having a bicycle on Monroe trigger the light top cross El Camino Real lat week. They responded below:
[quote]City staff went to check the intersection of Monroe and El camino Real this morning. Both left turn and straight thru detection loops were tuned and adjusted to be more sensitive to bikes. The "hotspots" were painted with circles and letter "B" next to it.
Use the new marking as your guide to be detected and try it several times.
Please give me a call to confirm that it is working then I will send an order to mark it with bike logo.

So if anyone has a chance to ride that intersection in the next week or so, see if you can trigger the light over the "B" marked areas.
