After someone "misplaced" the interconnection controls to the traffic control devices in Oswego, Illinois -- fell off the back of the shelf? -- it would take a long time to get from one end of town to the other. It was faster to drive through the strip mall parking lots than it was to take US 34.

When the town wanted a slogan, my "Come See Our Red Light District" received a lot of vote, as well as a play off the Aurora (IL) "City of Lights" for the "City of Red Lights"

Our sports teams won a lot of games by forfeit because people didn't run the red lights.

My town recently threw out our red light cameras. It turns out that the company who monitored the lights was also the same company which reviewed the videos and decided if you should receive a citation or not.

Ah, good old conflict of interest. It's what has made America great!

That's a rule in Florida even more than in the rest of the country. When your light turns green, make really, really sure some moron in a pickup isn't heading the other way at 50 mph.

Jeff -- you said it. Pinellas County is so crammed full of people it's a wonder we move at all.

Well, at least they're TRYING to make it better: http://www.politifact.com/florida/statements/2016/dec/28/jeff-brandes/florida-no-permit-needed-driverless-cars-florida-s/

What we really need are red light zone cameras.
