Traffic Lights Redux

Posted on Fri, Sep 16, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I'm pissed off about about late-night traffic lights. Around midnight, many of the lights go to "flashing red" mode, on the assumption that we all go to bed by 11:00 and so the few drivers remaining shouldn't have to wait the 60 seconds or so that it would take for the traffic lights to cycle. And not just at minor intersections, but major ones like Oxford and Quinpool. This might be fine if we were living in a hamlet of 100 people or so, but this is a CITY, for Pete's sake! Add to the confusion the students who increase our population each September, and who may never have encountered this strange phenomenon before, and you are looking at opportunities for perfectly avoidable collisions. —Savage Narce
