of Traffic Control Woes

Like most cities, I'm sure, in the city where I live, we have a main traffic artery that is a nightmare to drive. It is plagued by usually high traffic, and an excessively high amount of traffic lights. To make matters worse, it seems like city planners had never heard of the concept of synchronizing those traffic lights. Being a main north-south route, it would stand to reason that, if one travelled at speed limit, one should be able to cross town on nothing but green lights. At least that's the way I see it. Sometimes one has to wonder what city planners were smoking.

In the same way, I had to laugh when I saw this picture. I have no idea where this intersection is, but really? City planners say you have to yield to oncoming traffic. OK. But then look at the other signs. Can't turn left, can't turn right, and across the intersection, a sign telling you that you can't enter that street either. Hmm, I guess that means that your only option is to back up and find another route. Morons!
