OT > You've tested this in L.A. and San Diego by going the speed limit through intersections up to the next light, extensively, late at night with no other traffic around?
Yes. I'm a night person. I drive to a place I can ride my bike safely almost every night. I'm one of those weird people who slows for red lights and takes off for green lights... unless a BMW goes screaming around me to hit the light red. And then sits there on the phone when it turns green.
> You don't see any pavement sensors in the middle of the street, you know, those large circles or squares with the rounded off corners in the road, anywhere?
Plenty of them. Here they are all right in front of the lights, which means you have to get so close to the light you end up stopping just as it turns green.
San Diego was called "America's most corrupt city" by the Wall Street Journal at least twice... even though the climate is nice.
Yes they work better than 4 stop signs at low traffic two lane intersections.
Actually at a lot of places where there are lights I would prefer stop signs. Never hit em green anyhow... at least with stop signs you can proceed without needlessly waiting.
I'm obsessed with street design because of my design background an because my hourly depends on how efficiently I can get to jobs. I pretty much know all the back routes around gridlocked areas in San Diego... for example because of NIMBYism you don't want to drive into La Jolla directly... miles long traffic jam on the main route everyday all hours... hideous place, I would never buy there.
