Hey :suspicio: , I will give you that some CT drivers are like that but not all. I think there are quite a few crazy drivers sprinkled in each state, sometimes you just encounter more of them than others.i'm starting to think that CT drivers either never learned that red means stop or they're all color blind.
Ouch!!! Feelin no love...........hehehehejimbob said:this is a great idea, in fact I'll take it a step further ,and have it swing a huge blade down that cuts any car in half that tries to run the light. :evil: :lol:
and next install a sensor that won't give the green light to any car in a turn lane thats not giving a turn signal.
I could do this all day. :lol:
I've seen some regular old low-tech stop lights that are synchronized so that they always change in the same order and they're timed (poorly?) so that you have to stop at all of them (3 and sometimes the 4th) unless you jackrabbit out of the first one and speed by about 5mph. Saves several minutes on the morning commute for those willing to speed by 5 mph and risk getting a ticket for accelerating too quickly (reckless?).FORIAMBILL said:there's one in Alexandria set at 25. exceed 25 and you trip it. do 40 and you pass through as it turns yellow. counter productive.
The one I'm talking about has a sensor in the roadbed quite a bit before the actual intersection. It seems to work pretty well, goes yellow and then red before the car actually hits the intersection. I never watched the cross traffic lights...so I don't know if it holds them with a longer red to prevent an accident.pete1 said:Does the system time the yellow light so the speeder has time to stop? Faster speeding requires more yellow time. What if the light switches fast enough so the cross traffic gets the green light just as the speeder enters the intersection? Or, what if the system notices that the speeder is not braking or is even speeding up? The system *knows* the speeder is going to enter the intersection, yet it gives the cross traffic the green light anyway? That's one hell of a lawsuit.
Connecticut drivers are awful!!!! 3 people through every red light, sit in the left lane going below the speed limit, if you are in an SUV you have the right of way. I hate driving around here.ROXYB5 said:Hey :suspicio: , I will give you that some CT drivers are like that but not all.
