As a former VW Beetle owner, I was often stuck at a light near where I
used to live that had a weight sensor which seemed to require more
weight than my car had. I often had to drive forward and back near the
sensor repeatedly to get the light to cycle. I didn't refer to this as
magick, though, I called it 'jerking off the light'. So, maybe sex
magick applies.
