+1 to the guy who posted the video for the muted fast-forward in the middle. Very polite.

"On a traffic light green means 'go' and yellow means 'yield', but on a banana it's just the opposite. Green means 'hold on,' yellow means 'go ahead,' and red means, 'where the fark did you get that banana at?'"

When I was a kid all of our jokes about people being stupid, making foolish choices, or being ignorant of technology, the butt of the joke was a generic Polish person.

It means tweak your fuel to air mixture so your engine can idle without stalling.

I don't know about the rest of Europe but in Germany the yellow came on for just a second before the light went green. I don't know why.

And fix your scooter dude.

I was actually very pleased with that feature when travelling in Europe. It gives you a heads-up as to when the light will be changing. It's especially useful to help modulate braking when approaching a red (but soon-to-be-green) light. Though I think it's probably just in place to maximize traffic flow through the light -- the visual equivalent to the "Ready, Set,..." portion of a footrace countdown.

Some people have radically different ideas of what constitutes an entertaining video, apparently.

I've got a feeling he was part of the convoy, running rear block for the bike guys. And I'm guessing the bike was on its way to the shop. Just guessing.

That's a distinct possibility for sure. I thought of that as well, but random-guy-on -the-street grabbing his camera and following just to get more footage is funny stuff...

Protip: Yellow can mean speed up or slow down as what it really means is 'clear the intersection now so you don't get tboned, you fool'.

I don't see the big deal. A lot of people deal with stuff like this sometimes in their lives. My first truck had trouble with the carb and I had to keep my foot lightly on the gas so it wouldn't stall. It sucked working the clutch and brake with the left foot. I also had the starter fall out a few times and had to push start it. It is how you learn about cars.

I heard of some kids that were given a car by grandpa. The car needed brakes. They opted to get a new radio. One kid was designated to jump out and put a brick in front a tire when they needed to stop. Grandpa took the car away.

And when I lived in England I heard all the exact same jokes about an Irishman.

Most cars in Europe have a manual transmission. The Red+Yellow light is an indication that the light's about to change so that you know to put your car in gear and get ready to launch.
