Particular traffic signal does weird things to my car...

The only time that I am at this particular stop-light in the turn lane is immediately after I wash my car (get all water out of crevices). Every time I stop here at the red light, my C280 idle's roughly. Not jumpy or anything, just merely a rough idle. I always thought that it had something (?) to do with having just washed my car, until....
I was with my friend Lulu in her C230k at this stoplight, and her idle got rough @ the place (turn lane @ red light).

My question... is there a magnetic field or anything of the sort that can cause weird symptoms on cars, as I described??

It's so weird!

Thanks in advance!
