shewoolf Oh and I always figured it had to do with turning from a less busy street on to a busy street and not wanting to interrupt the flow of traffic or something like that.

shewoolf Yep we have some turn lanes like that around here! Drives me nuts! It did even when i was driving a 250..

Not at all. Road sensors trip by detecting the iron/steel mass of the vehicle and the TJ's front axle and engine alone have more mass than many cars do in total. Its length has nothing to do with it.

Sensors

I don't think that the sensor was set up correctly. I think it might have something to do with the length of the Jeep. Thanks for the post.

And they sit no higher up off the ground than any truck's axles do.

Probably just a malfunction with the street sensor or it hasn't been programmed to sense a vehicle coming from your direction.

Jerry Bransford That happens to me at some intersections no matter which of my three vehicles I am driving.

Arch Stanton My patience wears out after the other lights turn green and red twice.

Traffic lights lights?

On the way to work I have to go through a traffic light that won't turn from red to green if mine is the only vehicle stopped at the light. The light continues to turn green for the other lights that run perpendicular to direction of the light that I'm stopped at. I have to wait for someone for pull up behind me or stop in the opposite direction of the light. Anyone have the same problem?
