Strange Taxi Phenomenon

Well a few posts back I put up a picture of the view from our balcony looking towards the street, now I’ll explain why I shared that.

There’s a motion sensor on the corner of our building that turns on the flood light when somebody walks between our building and the one next door. Skunks, raccoons, and heavy rain have the same effect but that’s not the point here.

On occasion the light will turn on even though nothing seems to have triggered it. Now this is the strange part, if we have a look at the road just after it’s turned on, most of the time a taxi will be driving by.

There doesn’t seem to be any other vehicles that trigger it and people walking by on the sidewalk doesn’t trigger it either, so something specific to taxi’s sets off the motion sensor. The style of taxi, whether it’s new or old style doesn’t seem to make a difference.

So out theory is that it’s somehow related to their light bar on the top.

Anyways just something for people out there to ponder!!!
