Street lights!

Before I start, I want to say that I would like to start posting every day. I may try for a few days. I might have the strength to think up some stuff once in a while. And I just might type it into this little white box, so the rest of you can read it in a nice blue/teal/aqua (whatever you want to call it) box. Maybe...

Anyway, the reason I am posting today is to be crabby. Every single day, on my way to work, I come to this intersection. For some reason the streetlight is always red. There is probably a reason though. It seems, that this particular light favors the one direction of traffic that has no cars to be seen for miles. All of the other three directions of traffic are stuck because this light has to be dumb and give a solid green light and a green arrow to NOBODY! It seems like a simple technology could be put into place so that streetlights would know which lanes have cars, and which don't. I could do it with a webcam and my laptop, I'm sure the government could figure out a way to make "smart" lights.


Ah crap, I left the sweet picture I made to describe this on another computer.

I think it would be cool to see you writing more often.

After you finish your homework that is.
