Does anyone else have trouble at Red Lights, triggering them to change?

Is it a metal detector or a scale? Either way, they aren't triggered by a moped. Normally, It's not a big deal, because I just wait, and make a careful move, and run the red light if I have to.

Where I NEED the redlight, it's a different story. Some intersections are so busy and fast, and the moped generally fairly slow, so I need the red light to get across. Often, I choose to walk the moped across, as though I'm broken down, cars HAVE to stop for a pedestrian, even if he's pushing a moped.

Think of the liability if you get hit, because the light wouldn't change and you got smashed trying to cross against the light. I've called motor vehice and the local Police Departments, and have got several conflicting answers.

When I asked them to send me a quick letter to verify that they had just told me to "Use priudence and jurisdiction" and that I shouldn't "wait at a light that won't trigger..." they refuse.

What gives? What do others do about this situation? Have you actually tried to get an official answer to the question of "What do I do at a red-light when I am unable to trigger it.."??
