At traffic lights if I can't get to the front of the queue:
I sit to the right or left of the car in front of me (puts me in their mirrors and gives me an exit line if needed).
I keep the bike in first gear.
I use one finger on the front brake lever to flash the brake light while stopped (keep your foot off the brake pedal as that defeats the flashing brake light).
I keep the revs up a bit, ready to launch if I have to without stalling.
I watch my mirrors like a hawk.
I am nervous at red lights (one day being nervous may save my life).
That's pretty much what I do.
