Thread Name: BS: traffic lights
Subject: RE: BS: traffic lights
A lot of places I've been school speed limits say "when school is in session" and expect you to be able to figure out when that is. You can call it a safe bet taht school isn't in session at 3:30 AM

I do disagree about running red lights at empty intersections, unless the visibilty is very good, which it normally isn't in the middle of the night. Assume that somebody is speeding, and they are heading towards a green light, can you see them far enough up the road that you are sure there is no one there? Yes, sometimes you can see far enough. Often on a dark road in the night you can't.
