What would you like to do?
Old man Hannah learns to drive
How does turning left work?
OLD systems
green circle -> yellow circle -> red You never had the right of way
green arrow -> yellow circle -> red You had the right of way until red
These yellow circles were always very brief. < 3 seconds?
EXCEPT late at night, when blinking yellow circles for hours means you don't have the right of way.
An arrow means you have the right of way.
--------------------------
NEW fangled system
green arrow -> yellow arrow blinking -> red You had the right of way on green only
These blinking yellow arrows can blink for a long time.
The arrow shape is now ambiguous about right of way (green: yes. yellow: no).
Blinking still means you DO NOT have the right of way. (They added arrows.)
--------------------------
Turns out the new system is not redundant with the old, I'm just an idiot who learned
to drive in a long-forgotten century.
P.S.: When the power is out the ENTIRE INTERSECTION is a FOUR WAY STOP DAMMIT. </road rage rant>
