What happens when most people walk up to a red light?
They look left, look right, no cars coming, they walk.
Can a car make it across the street faster than a person? Probably.
So why do we all wait for the light to change, when we’re driving but almost never when walking?
My proposal is simple. Treat red lights as stop signs unless there’s a sign that says no turn on red (blind corners usually) or a new sign that's for this specific purpose.
If 200,000,000 cars spent even a minute less on US roads per day imagine what that would do to decrease both pollution and traffic.
