Mugato: Yellow light times are calculated by a complex formulaI kind of doubt that.
labman: I've never heard of such a thing happening. To think people would be motivated to screw others out of their money./sarcasm
IdBeCrazyIf: Mugato: Yellow light times are calculated by a complex formulaI kind of doubt that.You doubt the complexity in the mathematical operations of physics that determine where a dart lands on a board?
moothemagiccow: Mugato: Yellow light times are calculated by a complex formulaI kind of doubt that.What are there, like, 4 or 5 variables? Width of intersection, number of lanes, a journalist probably thinks that's complex.
ZAZ: New York used to have a section of its traffic control device manual describing signals specifically meant to mess with drivers. 17 NYCRR 275.5 (2001) "Speed control signals" (aka "rest on red"). They are designed to give you a red light if the control box doesn't approve of your speed. I can't find them in the current MUTCD supplement. New York may have abandoned them.
Twigz221: This is what happens when you keep cutting taxes and governments have to get creative to get revenue.
mod3072: It sounds to me like this should increase the safety of those intersections by at least a factor of 10. Maybe instead of whining about a few little traffic tickets, you should be thankful for FDOT's steadfast dedication to making your lives safer.
Mugato: IdBeCrazyIf: Mugato: Yellow light times are calculated by a complex formulaI kind of doubt that.You doubt the complexity in the mathematical operations of physics that determine where a dart lands on a board?Well obviously smaller side roads have longer red lights if they are opposite highways but I just can't see that much thought going into it, especially if they're farking with the timing to create a 21st century version of the speed trap.Weren't these farking things banned in some states?
Mytch: $afety first
theBigBigEye: This pretty much proves what most of our government thinks of us: a farking piggy bank they can bilk as much as they damn well please.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: labman: I've never heard of such a thing happening. To think people would be motivated to screw others out of their money./sarcasmBut this is the government. They arn't motivated by petty things like profit.
jrat454: What does the yellow light mean?
TanSau: we need a yellow light count down.That is all.
freeforever: Speaking of yellow, these things are turning up everywhere in Florida now, and it's only a matter of time before someone is killed when a driver doesn't realize you may have to stop at a yellow light.
