GREEN LIGHT TRIGGER FOR MOTORIZED AND E-SCOOTERS
The e-scooter boom is in full effect, with many cities in the United States looking for the two-wheeled rides to relieve urban center traffic issues. But the scooter craze also creates a few practical traffic issues, including riders who roll up to traffic signals and get stuck at red lights, in perpetuity. The maddening problem for riders can sometimes lead to dangerous user fixes, such as jumping red lights to get through the intersection.
Scooters lack the structural mass to trigger the inductive loop embedded in the pavement to make these red lights turn green. What are riders to do?
The Green Light Trigger is the practical solution to this maddening problem.
The patented* Green Light Trigger GLT 2.0 employs the use of two powerful neodymium magnets and a custom-designed low-profile plastic injection molded chassis that legally turn red traffic lights into green ones.
The GLT 2.0 accomplishes this by creating eddy currents in the inductive-loop traffic detectors embedded within the pavement at most traffic light signals which, in turn, then "trigger" the detectors, sending a signal to the traffic light to turn from red to green.
Full size trucks and cars already possess a large enough metal mass to disrupt the detector's magnet field, naturally, when these bigger vehicles stop either near or directly over the sensors while waiting at red lights. Smaller vehicles, however, lack the structural mass to accomplish the same triggering process.
The GLT 2.0 compensates for this deficiency by cost-effectively and efficiently "enlarging" their presence at traffic signals - and now red lights are triggered to turn green as if they were the same full size vehicles. No more endless waiting at stop lights or dangerous user-fixers - like running red lights.

Attachment to Vehicle:
The GLT 2.0 employs two neodymium magnets with extremely strong magnetic properties and quickly and easily affixes to all ferromagnetic metals on vehicles such as iron or its alloy, steel (metals that "attract" magnets).
For vehicles lacking these metals, such as a bicycle with a non-ferromagnetic titanium frame (which will not attract magnets), the GLT 2.0 simply attaches to those frames with an included 12" ziptie - that simply threads through the side of the chassis and over the frame before snugly locking itself to the bike or other vehicle, whatever the case may be.
