When there is a queue of cyclists (as there usually is at peak time), all cyclists would have to do is to keep entering the crossing as long as another cyclist or pedestrian is still in the detection zone.

In practise this does not work, because there are "too many law abiding cyclists" unwilling to enter the crossing when the TOUCAN shows red light (though you can legally cross a red TOUCAN). In part this is also because it can be difficult to judge if there are still people in the detector zone before entering the crossing. The TOUCAN design has the disadvantage that motorists can see if cyclists lights have turned red, while cyclists and pedestrians can't see the lights for the road.
