I found some slides for different types of stop light detectors and those that are paved over. In general, one needs to have their wheel and/or bottom bracket over the cut in the pavement for best detection.
If the stop light doesn’t change within 90 seconds, the detector is deficient and a person biking may go through the intersection when they will not interfere with a person driving a vehicle on the cross street. In other words, treat the stop light as a two-way stop sign with the cross street having the right-of-way.
Note: A police officer seeing you ‘run’ the red light may still issue a ticket. You would need to contact the county clerk to dismiss the ticket, or go before a judge to dismiss the ticket.
