- New traffic light design
The green one doesn’t make sense imo
agree for the same reasons. Do like the red/amber more prompt starts and presumably better for traffic flow.
<edit> altho if you stick cameras on all these lights should reduce the idiots and you’d have no “only just red” excuse for RLJPosted 4 years agotreaclespongeMember
No need for amber surely, red or green. You are either stopping/stopped, or moving. If it turns red when you are nearly there, stop. Countdowns for the remaining time on green will just make people floor it. Like the idea of counting down remaining red time though. People already just plough through amber or start moving on red/amber so why bother with it.Posted 4 years agoEdukatorMember
The green countdown is useful on lights with red-light radars, if traffic is slow moving or there are people waiting to turn in the junction you can calculate the lights will go to amber as you pass, you’ll be in the wrong place as it goes red and stop rather than get flashed.Posted 4 years agoEdukatorMember
I’ve used some recently on pedestrian crossings, I can’t remember exactly where. A great help for slow moving people who know how much time they’ve got left, and also for impatient types who are happy to count down a few seconds but will jay walk if they don’t know how long they’ll have to wait.Posted 4 years ago
