Did You Know about Traffic Light Sensor (Aka Induction Loop)

So this morning I stopped behind a car which stopped short of the right turn sensor (for some reason).
At first I didn't notice but after the first cycle of light and the right turn arrow didn't turn green, I noticed he's stopping short of the sensor.
Didn't want to be an a**hole to honk him, I opened the door and ran up to him and asked if he could move the car forward to trigger the sensor. To which he said I'm full of sh*t and the light is broken. Too early for drama so I just sighed and walked back to my car hoping he would look and realise there was a induction loop on the road. Another light cycle gone and still no green arrow, he changed lane and went straight instead.
I moved my car forward and the light worked just fine.
So did you know about these traffic light sensor? and what would you have done if this was to happen to you?
