I know this is my last day working mornings, but I do have a suggestion to help future generations: At 3:00 AM, traffic lights don’t need to go through the full cycle!
Every time I’ve stopped at a light, waiting to proceed to the next red light, I’ve pondered how ridiculous this is. You sit at the intersection looking around and realizing, there are no other cars within striking distance.
It’s 2007. I’m guessing all the traffic signals are microprocessor driven. Make them blink. Make them all blink red- I’m willing to stop, then go.
If I were driving through Midtown Manhattan, maybe I’d feel differently. I’m not. I don’t.
