    quote from the first link:
    " I have been hanging onto this information for quite awhile, but since FromTheShadows released Box 4.0 that touched on it, I decided that I should probably let this info go. The device the "mysterious hacker" is using to change all the RED lights to GREEN is a MIRT. It is nothing "secret" or extraordinary. A MIRT is a device that uses Infra Red technology to trigger Pre-Emptive sensor on a traffic light and causes the light to change to green. Yes, this device will give you the ability to ALWAYS HAVE A GREEN LIGHT. The shadowy hacker did at least give one good tid-bit of info, if you want to order one, you will need to do your share of Social Engineering, as they are only sold to "Authorized Users". Oh, and you will need to pony up the $300-$400 to get one.. Well, paying isn't the I-Hacked way, lets build one! Today I am going to show you how to build a DIY Mirt for less than $20.
    Before we begin, let me state that the legality of such a device is interesting. Since the device emits an IR signal rather than a radio one the FCC has no control over its
    production or possession. However the actual use of the product by non-qualified individuals would be illegal. It is probably against your STATE law for you to own & operate one of these. I must insist that you check with your local law enforcement before you even think about beginning to build one. I checked with mine and just owning such a device carries pretty stiff penalties. (not worth it)"

    If you flash your high beams at certain stoplights, you can get a green light. I've seen it work before, so maybe this explains why cop cars have strobes in the front grill.

    But, IR technology is WAY more cutty. I like that.

    That's what I'm thinking. Maybe it turns them all green and you have a big pileup at the intersection.

    a lot of major intersections here in NY have IR sensors that will detect if one of those are being used.

    SUPER huge fine and impounding of your car.

    Is the extra 30 seconds at a light really worth getting arrested over?
