(The Atlantic Cities)   New technology will take traffic lights out of intersections and put them in cars, giving every driver a personal red light or green light. There's no way this will end badly, especially for that guy who will still manage to block the box   (theatlanticcities.com) divider line 21

I'm sure it can be more efficient, but it seems like pedestrians will be an issue. I know TFA mentioned them, but how can it tell someone waiting to cross the street from someone who is just waiting for a bus?

Inappropriate rant : People who abuse school bus laws should be lined up and shot. Repeatedly. In public. In the farking balls, and let to bleed out slowly.

We've got these hasidic jew farks around my house who use school buses for their public transportation, and pick and drop jews off every hour of the day. Seriously. farking 6pm rush hour traffic, and these jew farks gotta use a school bus so that every lane has to stop and hold their dicks because farking schlomo is too farking cheap to buy a car.

7am to 3pm? Fine. Do whatever. Stop traffic on a wednesday night? DIE IN A FIRE.

They can still have those push buttons at intersections now where people request the WALK sign to come on, which then could communicate with the cars and the light system.

I would think a personal bus's stop sign would have no legal authority.

The law only states that you've got a duty to stop if the schoolbus has children on it. Hasidics wear all black clothing, so it's a bit difficult to make out adults from children in the middle of the night.

Now Maryland doesn't have to install a camera to ticket you for doing a rolling right turn at a "red light".

theresnothinglft: Now Maryland doesn't have to install a camera to ticket you for doing a rolling right turn at a "red light".


They deserved the ticket.  The light said stop (way ahead of time) and they didn't even come close to stopping. Stop means farking stop.

That said.  I don't believe in any technology or anything else that distracts the driver.  Eyes on the damn road.

It's more likely they will just replace all traffic lights with roundabouts.

True, but for that to work, they'd have to make those buttons actually functional.

It would seem like installing those at every intersection in the country would get expensive fast.

its all designed for your protection and to keep you free/safe.

yea, right!  lol

Yeah, install it right next to my check engine light which I also ignore.

If technology can control a light on my dashboard, why can't it just stop the car for me?

BarkingUnicorn: If technology can control a light on my dashboard, why can't it just stop the car for me?


I bet that's coming.  We give them a little control over us, and they want all control over us.  The cars stopping without us telling them to is the first step toward the government telling us where we can and can't go in the cars.

Mark my words, this is OBAMA's fault somehow.  The Democrats planned this.  The technology to do it came to them floating in the eye of the hurricane they created last year with the Liberal weather controlling machines.  You people are sheep for believing anything else when this is so obviously the truth.  Why would you and not me elect a muslim TWICE when he is worse for this country than his predecessor?  huh? huh? HUH?  That's it, i'm starting my own country!

Yeah, it's horrible. And that stretch of 9 one lane that runs from Toms River to the outskirts of Jackson? It's more pothole then road.

If it isn't used by a school, it is no longer legally a schoolbus and inviting confusion on when to lawfully obey the law.  That behavior should be put in check.
