Good point.Slightly off topic: Studies say that radar is preferrable over buried loops, for both accuracy and durability. I was surprised to read that loops are more likely to give a false indication for a vehicle in the adjoining lane.
I also think radar is more likely to detect non-vehicle intrusions such as pedestrians or large wildlife. Also bicycles, motorcycles etc may, depending on the situation, be too small to trigger the buried loops but would show up on proximity radar.
