Lets hear your traffic light problems.

I was stuck at this intersection for a good 15 - 20 min and I was starting to get really impatient because the light wouldn't turn green. I tried flashing my highs and going back and forth trying to trip the sensor and no luck. Then a car parked next to me on the left turn lane and he was able to trip the light wtf ? What is a guy suppose to do in this situation I was tempted to run the light but the dang red light camera cause me not to run the light.

turn left or right and go around the block or do a u-ey. it's way cheaper than that ticket in the mail.

I use to hop out and push the pedestrian buttons to get it to switch.

One of my biggest pet peeves of all time is any green arrow after 10 o'clock at night.

We have some traffic lights around here that I think are used as speed control on those roads. Not another living soul on the road, they turn red. They'll turn green as you approach, but not before you have to start braking.

I only wait for one full cycle of the light then I go

but it's only left turn lanes that don't see My truck sometimes
so if no other vehicle pulls up I just go when it's clear
I also report the failure to the city to avoid any tickets

then I recommend that they cycle the turn lane every light cycle even if it's a duration to let one or two vehicles go

some lights are like this and besides using the sensors to determine if there is a vehicle or two and how long to cycle the turn arrow

I think they should all have that default cycle

now lights in and out of private properties like grocery stores I don't wait long before I go when clear
