Well, electromechanical traffic controllers were the standard until the late '90s, maybe even a little later.

What moron thinks a yellow light means slow down?

Red means "Where did you get that banana?"

Pretty sure it's deliberate like when the cops tell you not to move and to put your hands up so they get to kill you either way.

I just looked at the pic but didn't RTFA so I just assumed it meant:
Green = Can go straight or turn.
Green + Red = Can go straight but cannot turn.

/It's perfectly cromulent.

In practice? A malfunctioning light is treated as a stop sign.

In reality? 2 of the 4 people remember that info, and 2 others will blow by it like jackasses or think the other 2 stopped cars are idiots, and gun it, angrily.

When a traffic light is broken or displaying more than one color you treat it as a stop sign.

In VA, people don't know what no traffic lights mean.  After a hurricane, the lights were out and people were just zipping through like it was the end of days.  I stopped at an intersection, and had a pickup go swerving around me while laying on the horn and giving me the finger.  Because I treated it as a 4 way stop.

Had a guy I know tell me "no, when the light are out, it means you don't have to stop. It's the law". I saw, well the light are out in all directions right? He says "yeah, so?" 'So what happens when you don't stop, and the guy coming from the side doesn't stop?' "Uh...... well the law says you don't have to stop." He rode a scooter. I wished him the best of luck with that.

The average driver can't even handle a normal 4-Way Stop. It's no wonder that a surprise 4-Way stop causes absolute panic.

In my experience it's always a wild jailbreak situation at busy intersections. You and a hundred other cars are waiting 5 or 10 minutes for a break in traffic until one brave soul gets enough of his car into the intersection to stop the cross traffic and then apparently it's your direction's turn to go because everyone goes.

I was almost hit yesterday by someone barrelling through a flashing red. Luckily I am obesrvant and cautious and go first for the brake pedal because the horn doesn't do anything.

This is Fark, not "serious actual answers." (In reality, though, I just clicked to make sure that someone had posted this.)

The average driver can't even handle a regular stop or properly-operating traffic light.

It isn't so much remembering, it's also how humans drive. (CSB time) A handful of years ago I was living in an area when the power went out late at night. Even though I knew the rules about non working traffic lights meant "4 way stop" if you're on a highway, even one you've been on thousands of times, you tend to drive almost on cruise control. So, yeah, I blew through three or four intersections before even realizing the signals weren't working. Thankfully, the local police knew this and job #1 was to block off the side street access to the main roads when the power went out.

I do sincerely wonder how autonomous driving cars will handle that, or if they can even detect a nonfunctional traffic light.

red means stop and green means go. Unless you work in the power generation field. In which case red means equipment on and green means stop (or off). Catches a lot of new people by surprise. 30 some years later and I still question the logic behind it.

I am familiar with that intersection. No sane person trusts the light at 20th and Sansom even when it appears to be functioning as designed.
