What is so complicated about traffic lights?!

Posted on Mon, Aug 30, 2010 at 10:41 AM

I've driven in plenty of cities including ones with much worse reputations - but I do not get Halifax drivers at all!

Basic, basic driving skills - if you cannot be sure that you can clear an intersection - DON'T ENTER IT. Why is it that I've been stuck so many times on Joe Howe trying to get on 102 because the entire intersection is blocked by idiots who start turning left off the exit and can plainly see that there's no room for them?! It happens everywhere in the city. This isn't complicated.

And yellow lights?! They don't mean jump on the gas and cut off the poor sod trying to make a left turn. And reds - they mean stop. Really. Not just haul around that right turn and again almost nail the guy finishing the left. —I wish I were HRP - I'd write so many tickets...
