Put Traffic Lights on flashing amber at night

Between the hours of 7pm and 7am, traffic lights should be switched to a flashing amber condidtion. This means that if it is clear then you may proceed. This system operates and works perfectly well everywhere else in Europe.

Rationalising Road and Street Signs, and Traffic Lights

Ove recent years, the number and size of road and street signs has mushroomed to the point where we are now presented with a visual blitz of messages all competing for our attention.

Most of them are there for ostensibly safety reasons, but the sheer number means that the really important messages get lost in a visual mess of competing signs.

This mess of signage also greatly degrades the appearnce of many of our towns.

We need to revise whatever regulations or standards govern the placement of signs, and start to eliminate those signs which add little value, leaving only that that are vital for safety or direction-giving.

For example, at a large roundabout near me, at the junction of the A10 and the A14, for each stram of traffic joining the roundabout there are an amazing SIX sets of IDENTICAL lights – two sets on different levels on eacvh of three poles; one on each side of the road, and one on the roundabout! A single set on the roundabout is quite sufficient.

Road Signage

Here in Bristol we suffer from excessive road signage

The other day i counted 10 red traffic lights pointing at me telling me to stop at a junction.

Do we really need 4 huge black and white arrows telling me which way to go round a traffic island ? My local traffic island ( white tree island (BS6) ) has some lovely flowers totally obscured by these ridiculas signs.

I can see why the council are doing this.

We need to examine our Libel laws

Remove all the 32 people killed in 3 years type roadsigns

Putting such specific information on a roadsign is unnecessary and it must be remembered that those were real people and the relatives of those people may not necessarily wish to be reminded every single day of their loss. If you wish to remind people that a road is dangerous the current road signs using symbols are adequate. To the people who have not lost someone these signs soon become background very quickly hence are useless, and a grss waste of money. I would like to know how much has been spent on these in the last 5 years.
