There is an intersection nearby my home where recent improvements have been made to install traffic lights – it was only a simple four-way stop before. I suppose traffic has increased, and the community felt that it was time that this intersection be controlled more rigorously, so… traffic lights. No more simple stop signs, just red/yellow/green… PLUS TEN STREETLIGHTS.
At one intersection.
That means that there are ten poles and ten giant “cobra-head” style streetlights illuminating this intersection. I’ve never seen a more well-illuminated intersection in my life. I suppose this will make the area safer, right?
