Almost 100 attempts and ZERO successful crossings in the last year.

Maybe next time
Yes! My daily annoyance too! There are two lights toward the end of my commute, fairly close, triggered by sensors (rather than having fixed timing)... either one or the other or both are red nearly every single time I want to get through... hardly ever both green. I've seen other cars ahead of me get through both no problem, but I've only been able to get through both two times in the past year. I think the sensors know I'm coming...
