When you think about, one red light affects everything!

I sometimes think that an alien looking down at earth would be really bemused at how all the cars know when to stop and go. Wouldn't go so far as to say I'm actually interested in them though but of course YANBU grinwink

I like the motorway exit and entrance ones the best. They are fascinating.

Now you've got me interested in your interest! What is it about them that fascinates you? (Genuine question - not taking the piss smile)

It's not the lights that are interesting, it's our obedience to the signals we have learned to infer.

But consider.... In an anarchist society you don't stop at a red light because you must, but simply because it's a good idea.

The thing that most worries me Santana is if you are posting this while actually driving... I'm hoping you're a bored passenger on a long motorway journey!
