Traffic lights affected by foliage

This is a perennial issue. The sensors on top of the traffic lights controlling traffic across the railway bridge seem to be affected by overhanging foliage which triggers the lights into 'default mode' which leaves everyone waiting on both sides of the bridge for excessive periods of time. The lights usually change to green by the time the exiting traffic is at the bottom of the bridge slope, which is very effective at keeping people waiting for the minimum time. But at the moment traffic is being held for so long that it can be seen to sometimes put pressure on the front car in the queue who starts to think the lights are stuck. I'm fairly convinced this is just overhanging foliage which need its annual clipping.
